Or are there too many issues with it which would overwhelm a new user?

Thanks

I would think so, though I'm no novice or expert in Linux. I personally find the ability to easily jump from one OS to another very helpful, as you can run Debian from the eMMC and then boot from an SD with a different Linux installed, without having to go through the same installation process that Linux on a PC would require.

You'll also see a wider variety of Linux distros pop up after a while, like Manjaro. When their PBP image is finished, you'll have the option to boot directly into Debian flavor, or pop in your SD and boot into an Arch flavor. Effectively doubling your Linux exposure to 2 different setups!
