I think that the distro isn't going to make much of a difference. If
it installs, then it will run pretty much the same regardless of the
underlying distro. Of more concern is the disk space & speed,
processor speed, & network speed.

Disclaimer: The closest I've come to any of these is "Yeah, I want to
install them"
