Hello fellow coders,
I am in this situration right now, where i'm soon going to buy my 3'rd dedicated server, and i wondered what Linux OS would be best? Right now i have a 64 GB and a 32 GB server with Linux CentOS 6.5 Minimal, and i'm using the 32 GB's server for hosting purpose for my customers, and the 64 GB's server to sponsor people (YouTube'ers, Twitch'ers etc.). So my questions is; what is the best and easiest Linux OS for Minecraft hosting, and for Gmod/CS:GO and CS:S hosting? And what about security? What is the easiest to learn security thing on the OS?

- Hope this makes sense, I'm not English... So...
