    Linux OS for a server


    So basicly i need you help to choose 1 Linux OS to be my main OS on my server. I'm going to have game servers as the main objective but going to host websites,ftp and mail server too. The Server is going to have and Intel Quad Xeon with 8GB of ram for sure and about 2TB HDD for now. AS about a desktop or cli version i prefer an os with a CLI but it doesn't matter

    What OS and version(of the OS) do you suggest?(eg.Ubuntu 9.10 Server)

    Ubuntu
    Debian
    openSUSE
    Fedora
    CentOS

    (these were the only once i know you can suggest any other)

    Thanks for all you help before hand.

    Generally speaking, the latest version of any specific distro will be the best release to go with, but of course there might be exceptions.
