I think a better question could be - Which is your favorite linux distro? "Best" is highly subjective.

Nevertheless, I have tried many just for fun. I have to use windows because of the games though, but I do like the performance linux give on the same hardware. For me Ubuntu and Mint would be the better choice as they are supported on most of the consumer hardware and a big community. Mint also has the third party closed source drivers options to install in case you need.

I can remember that 10 years back it was the Puppy linux that I used to boot in and rescue whenever I messed up my installations or bootloader.

Edit:
I miss-read the question even reading it multiple times:-D. Sometimes you are just out of your mind. The discussion is about servers and not PCs. Thanks @psvl for reminding.
