None, as they are almost all clustered/load balanced/redundant.
Originally I was using RH 2.1 then 3, however, I found myself constantly
upgrading components because RH did not want to break "version"
compatibility for 5 years, which in my eyes is worse than binary
compatibly - Moores law and all that! so Fedora suits me down to the ground.
The only real issue is a stable kernel for your requirements, everything
else is less important, also I have a habit of running everything in
user-space so it's a lot easier to virtualize or switch out the
underlying OS if required.
