It probably doesn't make a whole lot of a difference; I always recommend using whichever one you're more comfortable with.

Ubuntu if you'd like the linux-rt kernel (for running higher server side FPS) - simply run apt-get install linux-rt and reboot!

I'd suggest CentOS.

I cannot speak for Ubuntu but I have been Using CentOS 5.X for a year and a half now and its been great for any HL1 or HL2 game

I've used both Debian and CentOS for gameservers and both work fine. Like others have said, pick the one your most comfortable with. (Side note: I personally would use Debian over Ubuntu)

If your interested in kernel optimizations for gameservers, checkout:

it depends
If I got that properly that you want to run a game server first you should find which game server you want to install
ig you are planed to install gamecp the Centos is the best choice
or if you are planed to use TCADMIn that I prefer to use it as it is runngi by windows you should install a windows server

I would use definitely CentOS. Either OS would probably work just fine, though. I personally think of Ubuntu as a desktop OS, but that does not mean Ubuntu would not be able to do it.

Additionally, you could set up CSS without any web admin. You could set it all up through SSH by hand. A lot of CSS servers are set up that way.

There is no "better" OS but I run a few game servers for my forum members on Fedora Core 8. Works very well.

I've used centos with most other things and gave Fedora a try a few years ago and still sticking to it. It just comes down to what you make of it. At the end you can have the same outcome.

Debian works very well here for TF2 srcds without any kernel reconfiguring nonsense ("2000fps" is a waste.)

I personally would find CentOS much easier to configure and setup.

Ubuntu is more favoured for a Desktop OS, I would only think people use Ubuntu for servers is if they already use it for their Desktop OS so it's pretty much similar.

I've only ever used Centos 5.3 and it done the job professionally, you could also use Windows 2003 and run SRCDS and Windows Media Player or an FPS Booster
