Sorry, I didn't really answer your question, because you wanted to know 
which image to start with.

So here's my (old-fashioned) take:
I would always use the official image from Pharo-project.org. This is 
because it is the most likely image to be available whenever you need to 
build a fresh one. If you use somebody's preconfigured image, you never 
know what they actually did to make it. If they can offer a procedure 
that reliably recreates their image, then this is fine.

That is why I always roll my eyes if somebody offers me a ready-made 
image with whatever in it. I don't want to be relying on something that 
I cannot recreate in a catastrophic case. If I keep a copy of the image 
in the Pharo distribution and keep records of what I have to do to load 
my stuff and get it running, that is the most reliable strategy, IMO. 
Or, even better, if I have a piece of code that does all the nasty work 
for me.

Just my 2 cents
