Default Help for a new user ?

Hello everybody
I'm not new to Android I bought a Galaxy S II last summer and I discovered root and all the other funny things ;)
And today I get an Archos 101 gen8 for free ! ^^
I immediatly went on my favourite site : XDA :P
And I'm a bit lost...
What is the best rom you can recommend me ?
I read that ubuntu is avaible but I don't know if it's fully working...
Should I use Urukdroid or BullAOS (CM7, I'm right?) because my tablet is pretty slow with stock android ... ?
The best would be a dual boot and I think it's quite possible no ?
Thanks a lot :)

And I apologize for my bad english it's not my mother language...

I believe that it is up to you to see what ROM works best for you. I prefer UrukDroid, some like Ubuntu, others still just use chrulri's ROOTED stock ROM. Advantages/Disadvantages are mostly seen in personal use.

One way to go about it would be trying them all out and see which one best suit your needs. If you like speed and optimization, go for Uruk. If you feel that stock ROM is good enough and you just need root, try above mentioned chrulri's ROM. If you don't like android and for some reason want Linux, go for Ubuntu/Debian.

Hope this helps.
Peace.

Suggest you Urukdroid. You can use it as your daily OS with many other benefits.
