Yes, Ubuntu *Server* looks promising.

Stuart did some work on Debian and Ubuntu, and got things running. However, it is hard to keep track of so many different distributions, and we certainly are not equally familiar with all of them. Now, folks who have greater familiarity with certain distributions might in the future want to become the sponsor of our respective install packages (hint, hint).
