A distribution seems to be very personal choice. Some people like some feature of the distro.

You can build it yourself either linux from scratch (I do mean scratch) or a slightly more simple build you own Gentoo.

You can run virtual machines within the 2008 os or consider testing OS's based on hardware supported.

Both are very technically exact to your hardware and system. Very time consuming to build. Might be time consuming to update.

Distro's like Opensuse, Fedora, centos, Debian, maybe freebsd, openbsd, netbsd, and a few others are good choices for servers. Even OpenSolaris can be used.

Most distros support parts or all of server uses and many offer a standard server install, May be command line only.
