Choice of OS with ejabberd

view story

http://serverfault.com – I am pretty new to ejabberd. So spare me if this is a noob question. We are developing a real time application using xmpp and decided to go with ejabberd server. We are in the process of setting up our server and want to know which OS is best suited to work with ejabberd. If it's *nix, then which flavor to go with - ubuntu or centOS? (HowTos)
