After changing my vote 4 times in less than 2 minutes, i'm just going to say that for a first playthrough i'll go with the demo resolution (partly because i'm interested in some more Corpo jobs - with the possible boons that can give an edgerunner, like high tech stuff - and partly because i find Stout and what was teased about her rather intriguing).
So, 1. Ok, maybe without the "queen" part ... one step a time
Don't like Stout. Don't really like the gangers, either. But at least they were up-front. I'd probably lone-wolf away from both of them...but I might do business with the gangers again, based on how things played out in the demo. (In turn, I'd make it a hobby to undermine Stout for taking the sucker-punch route with me.)
I would love to "spend" the chip on someone else who pissed me off. It would be pretty funny to use it on some unrelated gang/business. Gun vendor ripping you off? Corp's paying for your new toys, and they can also foot the bill for your popcorn while you watch the raid go down.
