For production system I would pick the LTS version. Personally I'm using Fedora, but for production I'm using long term support distributions like CentOS.
Going with Fedora or Ubuntu(non LTS) makes You upgrade the system every 1/2 year or patch it by Yourself - very non-trivial.

If you install a server you generally hope it will work for few year without problem.
ubuntu LTS Server version will be supported until 2015
