I personally prefer Ubuntu and haven't had any issues with it so far,
though I know some people dislike the constant update cycle that it goes

Other than that, CentOS or other RedHat variants for clusters, though I
think there's at least one cluster here which is running Ubuntu. I also
believe CentOS goes through a yearly update cycle, which might be something
to also consider.
