I wish I could vote Debian, but it's hard to beat RHEL.

CentOS. Used to use CentOS, then switched to Ubuntu and switched back to CentOS about 18 months ago. Solid.

Well, this can be turned into another flame-war, coz' I'm yet to see Slack OR Debian OR mentioned XYZ distros as the servers at a serious enterprise level.
Nothing beats RHEL and to some extent CentOS in this category, no matter how much the fanboys keep trying prove their point.Period.

*(Or may be I'm a dumba**s not to see the Slack impact at some enterprise level, if not then I stick to my words )

I agree with PrinceSharma for standard/normal/business servers - nothing beats RHEL.
Of course Gentoo is 1st choice for beleeding edge servers
