I would say that the Debian vs Red Hat issue is secondary compared to
how recent the installed packages are. IMHO, you'll want:
(1) "state of the art" - newest Ubuntu, Fedora Core, or perhaps openSUSE
(2) stable/"business-level" maturity - Debian stable, CentOS (or
Scientific Linux/RHEL/other RHEL rebuild), Ubuntu LTS release
(3) bleeding edge - Arch / Gentoo
You may also want to consider non-current releases. If I had to chose
three, it might be Ubuntu 11.04, Debian 6, and CentOS 5.
