That is correct.  I apologize for any ambiguity.

While I am currently unable to locate the post asserting the Udoo team
successfully installed Jessie, this post from a Udoo user alludes to a
successful Jessie install:

On the other hands, there is a user also encountering the blank-screen
syndrome with Jessie on the Udoo X86 platform:

And another who found stretch more stable than Jessie:

I believe this may have been where I saw the mention of Debian on the Udoo
X86 platform: http://www.udoo.org/docs-x86/Software_&_OS_Distro/Linux.html

When/if I receive a response to my inquiry from the Udoo support team
regarding which Jessie distribution they installed, I'll post it here.


PS: It is the integrated Arduino hardware and very low power requirement
that make this new platform interesting to me for portable/battery-power
