need help choosing operating system


Hi,

I need some help in choosing which operating system to use for mygamerspace.com

My developer usually uses RedHat and did not know which one to choose and suggested I post here.

here are my choices:

Centos Enterprise Linux 3.6
Centos Enterprise Linux 3.6-64bit
Centos Enterprise Linux 4.2
Centos Enterprise Linux 4.2-64bit
Fedora Core 2
Fedora Core 2-64bit
Fedora Core 3
Fedora Core 3-64bit
Fedora Core 4
Fedora Core 4-64bit
FreeBSD 4.11
FreeBSD 5.4
Windows Std 2003
Windows Web 2003

I've only had my site for a month and due to an overwhelming amount of member registration I have been forced to seek a dedicated server. However I have no idea which operating system to use from the image above. Will someone please give me some insight?

Thanks in advance!

I know that LinuxQuestions.org is hosted by RedHat Enterprise Linux Servers, which are highly reliable. If you know alot about BSD, I would probably go with FreeBSD since its by ran on alot of highly production critical servers.

I was told that Centos is RedHat. Can anyone confirm this?

It's only a free clone from the Enterprise version. So it's not supported or maintained by Redhat (if that's what you mean).
