As a developer i would love to have an OS packed with the best IDEs and programming languages.

Some of my suggestions would be to add

1. Ruby
2. Android Studio
3. nginx
4. PHP
5. MariaDB

Great idea.

We could go a little further by creating developer meta packages. For example:

apt-get install android-developer

Gets you

- android sdk
- and android IDE
- android x86 emulator?
- cordova?
