What distribution do you think is best suited for a server environment?

CentOS here. Just completed another year of happily using it without any issues at all.

I'll be using Mageia as my server, but I guess there is no way to vote for it?

I am using Nethserver which is a GUI for for CentOS. The common setup is done via the GUI and if I need other settings I can handle it via command line.

RHEL. We have a lot of issue with SUSE, including their $h1tty support model.

I consider myself a newbie. I have been on Ubuntu Mate as my "Home" computer where all my files and email are kept, and it has proved itself stable and reliable.
That said, I now want to include a server at my home, to use for email, a website, and file server for the family. I am leaning toward Debian, but I am a little confused as to which iso is the server?
Can you point me to the correct download?
Thank you!

Interesting to see that CentOS has over taken Debian this year.

Debian would be a good choice, as Ubuntu is based on it, therefore you should feel comfortable with the commands.
You usually build up the type of server that you want, from a CD or Net install.
(Check out the documentation regarding running it as a server.)
