I'm sure I heard that someone figured out how to not need the SD card at all with the rp4, but now I can't find those links.  I'll let you know if I come across that again.

If there are no downsides to Ubuntu and you are already familiar with it, then that may be a factor for many to weigh.

Also, my Understanding is that Raspbian is restricted to 32 bit user-land.  Depending on what you are doing, that many be an important performance consideration.

Another idea is ZFS support in Ubuntu.  That may be really nice to have if you are using one of these for a light Nextcloud server or something similar.
