My experience has been with redhat and debian. Freebsd I have not much
experience with and therefore cannot comment.
Debian and redhat have different philosophies. Redhat being a
commercial company is under pressure to release new versions of its os
on a regular basis. Debian is a volunteer, non-commercial organization
that releases software when "it is ready". For the latest and greatest
software choose redhat (now fedora) but for stable well tested software
choose debian. The install of debian is somewhat more difficult for
inexperienced users but the admin of debian machines is much simpler.
Evaluate your needs honestly then repost and then we could be of more
help bye for now and good luck syl
