If you can keep your head while all around are losing theirs, then you're not quite grasping the situation

Tegra is ARM .. considering WinRT sucks and has no market share, 90%+ of Tegras are liable to end up running Android, so doing development in Linux makes sense.

Why Ubuntu .. because it's ARM port is out there, well known, and well supported both technically and with software.

I suppose the same could pretty much be said for Debian .. but Debian have a tight NO proprietary software policy, so are probably less amenable to working with someone like NVidia.
