Ditto to that.
For my home server I was a long-term debian user but there were a few
packages that Ubuntu had that debian didn't, and a few things that
behaved "oddly" on Debian that I wanted to see about on Ubuntu.
Thus far using LTS on the server has had nothing but good results. I
think you're more likely to run into issues on a desktop because
you'll be dealing with X, graphics drivers, and drivers for
wifi/sound/etc, as well as possibly laptop/ACPI issues. I actually did
have a few humps to cross with the initial sound config so I could
have the server play audio to my stereo, but nothing major.
