Well, hello! I just joined here, lovin' it.
Well, I'm a server admin on a server in the EC2. My server runs Ubuntu Server for the main reason of simple usability.
And in the terms of simple usability..
Also, what strikes me about Ubuntu server is the amount of support you can find for it, not so like FreeBSD. What I mean by this is canonical, can you think of another commercially backed Linux Server Distribution?

- Simple automated package installer (Aptitude)
- Pre-Configured Package Installer (For Web server Components)

I have setup a small office server just recently. Migrating everything from Windows 2008 R2. It was a success, and everyrthing went quite smoothly.
- FTP server
- File sharing (samba)
- HTTP server
- MySQL server
- CVS server
- Automatic daily backups (rdiff-backup)
- SSH server for management
I went with Ubuntu Server 10.04 LTS, it was a good choice. It outperforms Windows Server by lightyears. A (re)boot takes just a couple of seconds (!), the whole OS takes up just a little over 1 GB, and uses a ridiculously low amount of RAM when idle.

Gento, Arch, maybe Debian or FreeBSD - definitely not Ubuntu Server (which shines only as a desktop distribution).
