Hello Beaglebone experts,

I would like some basic guidance on how to approach the beaglebone from the 
hardware and software point of view.

Before i start my query list ,let me say that i come from a embedded 
hardware background,mostly worked on bare-board projects in close-loop 
motor controlled applications,i am relatively new to operating systems.I 
have used linux once for my basic networking and file handling needs two 
years back.

I purchased the beagle-bone black to mainly to do two things:
*To familiarize/learn myself with linux and its basics features.
*Learn to interface external hardware with the BBB to perform time 
sensitive tasks.(like control a pulse width of an H bridge,PID control loop 

Now for the quiry list:
1.Which version of linux should i run on the BBB.I searched many forums and 
the community seemed to have a mixed review between Debian,mintOS,ubantu 
and red-hat free edition.
2.Which programming language is most easiest to use when working with the 
BBB.Python,C/C++,Java ? I have mostly used C and assembly,so will 
persisting the the same be useful?I found some useful tutorials on the 
beagle bone black here <http://www.toptechboy.com/beaglebone-black/> but it 
is it is done in Python.
3.My final end project is to develop an on-grid inverter using the BBB,so 
the BBB will act as the main CPU which will interact with the other 
peripherals like a slave MCU(via SPI),a PT100 sensor via an i2C bus,run a 
20x4 -8 bit LCD display directly from the Beagle bone black.I plan to use 
the dedicated PRU unit of the sitara for some of these activities.
I would like to know,What are the prerequisites for doing this project? I 
know the learning curve for this project is big,but with a good starting 
point i am sure i will be able to get out a working prototype soon.

Many thanks,
