My first recommendation would be the OS with which you are most
comfortable.

That said, I'm running it on a FreeBSD 5.2.1-p4 box, it builds very
nicely out of the ports tree and brings along all of it's dependencies
w/ a minimum of fuss and bother.

One of the things that I really like about FreeBSD 5 is the ability to
use dump to get real-honest-to-god backups of the live filesystem (use
the -L option to take a snapshot of the partition before dumping it).

That, plus the ports tree, really ROCKS.
