Archlinux and Docker for my Raspberry PI2

What is the best linux distribution for Raspberry PI2? I started with Raspian (Debian is my preferred Linux distribution for servers, desktops and laptops) but docker didn’t work.

But with Archlinux it works fine.

How to create a docker images with Archlinux & RPI2? See

matteoredaelli/docker-karaf-rpi is the first docker image I have created.

Below my docker info output:

           -p 44444:44444 -v /apps/karaf-deploy:/deploy \
           matteoredaelli/karaf-docker-rpi /bin/bash
