Best OS?

Hi there, I have a Rackspace server that I can reformat to some test Ethereum mining. I won't have a graphical interface however, it's just command line.

Shall I go with Ubuntu 13.10 (I don't have the option of 13.04), or would a different OS be recommended? I saw Ubuntu was the OS used in the build guide on the website, just double checking.

EDIT - I'm using CentOS right now, and quite familiar with it, but it's a PITA if you want to use latest software packages (for instance, CMake 2.8 or higher is required. You are running version 2.6.4!)

    I've installed it on Ubuntu 13.10 and got an error at last step trying the run the client GUI.
    But other people also have the 'core dumped' error.

    That's odd. I now have it on two machines, both with Ubuntu 13.10. The one with the desktop is giving me a cannot find libethereum/Client.h error (the first time I got core dumped, not sure what changed). The remote server without the desktop works fine.
