The FAQ lists a few.

What Linux distros will be supported at launch?
Debian, Fedora and ArchLinux will be supported from the start. We hope to
see support from other distros later. We will be selling SD cards with the
distros preloaded. (Sept 4 2011 – originally, this FAQ suggested that
Ubuntu would be supported. Because of issues with newer releases of Ubuntu
and the ARM processor we are using, Ubuntu can’t commit to support
Raspberry Pi at the moment.)


Manufacturing has begun and they're expecting the first units by the end
of the month.


I'm looking forward to getting my hands on a Model B.
