My son uses Ubuntu on our home server. It works - and I expect all the others do too - so I can only go with my limited experience.

To be honest, I hate Ubuntu on servers (in fact, both Ubuntu and Ubuntu Server).

But then I guess this is a "pick a favourite" rather than "pick the best" poll.

Debian is my choice, however, I have CentOS on my server, which I find have made things a little easier to configure. Debian is starting to make slight changes in config files, which sometimes can be annoying.

IMHO Debian only beat CentOS due to Open Source Philosophy, as well as creating the distro themselves, as opposed to using Redhat Sources.

Yes, I too struggled to pick between them.. however, had to go with Debian purely on fact it's not a clone of RedHat.

I'm pretty sure Slackware can become a great server OS, given it reaches to the masses that way others are.

If it's not for Linux only, I would've gone for Solaris, ya know.

I guess I am the odd one out since I like Ubuntu LTS on every one of my servers.
It's stable, fast and easy to setup. I just love apt/dpkg.
