Ubuntu Server has been awesome for painless deployments. Plus it's stripped of all those tainted Unity feces.

Companies and their sys-admins love to put blame on the vendor support in case of goof-up, thus RHEL will unarguably be the one which is most widely used in server deployments because of the paid support.
Otherwise, Slackware won't make a less than professional server choice. Install, setup, run and forget. Update when you want without breaking the core. Isn't that what all sys-admins want.

Regards.

OpenBSD. Come on! It is probably considered the top secure OS in terms of the code being audited, as well as still its security measures, to a large extent.

Aren't we talking about 'Linux' based OSs here? Sure *BSDs are good when it comes to server usage, no doubt.

There have been BSD sub-forums at this site for some time now.
