Question What setup would you chose?

Hi..
I am wondering, what setup for a VPS like mine would you chose?

My VPS has Centos 5.6 and Ubuntu 10.04 available (clean installs from serverpanel), and I have tried them both with ISPconfig (and others), just for testing. Have made up my mind to go for ISPconfig3 as my CP, but I am not sure yet what distro I prefer, or if there are any cons or pros I'm not aware of.

My VPS has 1 dedicated ip (not dynamic), assigned by dhcp (hwaddr) to eth0 (any extra ip addr assigned to system will be assigned the same way - according to my host/provider).
EDIT: and it will be hosting some websites - not to much traffic.

I am wondering what setup all you experienced ISPconfig users would prefer? Please let me know!

I am unsure what to go for (what has the best potential for low resources and stability).

Anyone who add their vote/comment, you have my thanks in advance

-Tom

I'm misssing ISPconfig3 + Debian in your poll.

You will find that a lot of users here are using this setup.

Hey.. I have read so,, BUT my rented VPS only has centos and ubuntu. That is why I am asking about those two setups. Which would you prefer? Ubuntu is based on debian is it not?

Ubuntu 10.04 (server) will be supported until April 2015
CentOS 5.6 will be supported until April 2014

And think where are your more confortable on Debian based system or on RedHat based system.

Out of the two I'd go for Ubuntu, but in the real world I use Debian.
