Any Suggestions For Linux Distribution For Personal Server

view story

http://stackoverflow.com – I've been doing some research for awhile on linux distributions that'd be useful for a server I'm building, but I'm still not sure which I think would be best for just personal usage to play around with web development projects I have in mind. There likely won't be many connecting to it nor is it going to be something I plan to use showing my resume or work off to possible future employees (at least for now), but I'm not sure which distribution would be ideal. I've been reading more heavily on CentOS and Debian and such, but still am not sure. Any input would be great. Thanks (HowTos)
