Of course the best would be every possible flavor.
Also the best would be that it is compatible to all Linux distros.

I wrote a program which uses X-Window system and I didn't find a distro the 
software is not compatible with. The best is to minimize dependancies.

So I would prefer to not depend on qt or gtk whatever, but that is another 
story I think.

But the libraries for X-Window are included I found out.
