"Any" Debian flavour... you mean you prefer Ubuntu over openSUSE for a 
server? Wow... can you expand that POV? 

I don't mean Ubuntu is not a good choice -I really like their LTS 
service- but I find it very GUI focused and a bit bloated (that's only an 
opinion of course) while openSUSE provides many tools to be managed from 
console and remotely (by means of ncurses yast) from where you can tweak 
and control almost any aspect of the distribution (hadware, services -
apache, ldap, samba, postfix, etc...- kernel parameters and config, 
bootloader, partitioner, LVM volumes...). 

I find it very well designed and constructed and also very robust. I only 
miss the old 24 moths support for patches, which are now reduced to 18 
months, not very convenient for servers ;-(
