Default Preferred OS

Granted this seems to be designed to work on several platforms but what would be considered the OS of choice or preferred *nix platform?

Basically I figure a LAMP box would be best for me to develop on. Seems an easy way to wipe a test site and create a fresh one rather than reloading a trashed server.

Thanks for the reply.

My mistake though as I posted this in the wrong thread. It was meant for ISPconfig/General.

Was wanting the general consensus of what was the preferred OS for ISPconfig. I figure its the best way to replicate a shared hosting box to use for site development.

Tried Debian on my 1U server. MB is a Tyan Thunder LE (S2510). Debian didn't like the hardware at all.
