I don't think it really matters. I use gentoo, (mind you, I'm not a myth 
developer, just a guy who
happened to submit a tiny bit of code ages ago, that happens to be very 
related to what you're interested in).
I believe Isaac uses Ubuntu, but you should be cool with any linux 
distro..   most myth developers prefer
working in simple text editors (vi, emacs, whatever)..   Coming from a 
visual studio background, I like
KDevelop, as it happens to look like what I'm used to. It recognizes 
myth as a c++ qt project, works its magic,
and compiles it out of the box. (for me at least).

Bye, Lucas
