We were looking at Debian but on some of the new serevrs Debian asked me for Broadcom GiGE card firmware. Ubuntu 9.04-RC Server detected and worked perfectly. Have not spent much time debugging the Debian server though.


I believe the superiority of Debian on server is mostly a myth that predates creation of Ubuntu. Debian had lots of stuff going for it at the time of Red Hat dominance (back when Red Hat was mostly an "enthusiast" distro, apart from timeless releases like 6.2), but these days, when you contrast it with Ubuntu LTS (few months after the release), I think the situation is quite different. My experience with debian Lenny did not indicate that it were in any sense "better done" than Ubuntu 8.04, but this was on desktop.
