Which one of the following distributions are better for VPS hosting (with pro/cons):
- Ubuntu 8.04
- Fedora 8
- CentOS 5
I'm mostly looking for low resource usage (CPU & RAM) and easier management. Additionally I'm looking to run Java/Jetty on it.

This question came from our site for professional and enthusiast programmers.
Among the ones listed CentOS 5 is the only server distribution, other two are meant for desktops. Also Ubuntu 8.04 and Fedora 8 are not latest versions of Ubuntu or Fedora. Go for Cent OS 5 or preferably 5.5 for VPS.
