I'll second or third Pete's recommendation for CentOS.  It may not be what I'd run personally, but in terms of deploying to production, it'd be my first choice.  I've got a large CentOS deployment and what little annoyances I've had with software being behind current, I can usually get around by snagging an RPM or rolling one myself.
