Great Idea, but in my opinion you should also explore some cheaper alternatives to Raspberry Pi like Banana Pi and Orange Pi. They are similar to a Raspberry Pi but cheaper than it. You can get them from sites like crazypi.com

Raspbian the OS available on raspberrypi.org and works great for now.
Raspbian is based on Debian. There's no official Debian image made for Raspberry Pi.

Debian endorses no other operating system. That made clear, Debian does not endorse Hamara GNU/Linux or any other operating systems.
But Debian does maintain a list of direct derivative operating systems of Debian through the 'Debian derivative census'.
