I did my estimate of what will last, so I don't have to jump my 
infrastructure through hoops and loops again soon, so my decision:

1. Debian

2. on machines that will require cuda: Ubuntu (Debian clone which will 
support NVIDIA proprietary stuff)

3. FreeBSD (all servers: jails on FreeBSD)

This decision will let me to not make fundamental changes soon. Not 
guaranteed, but I have good record of such decisions made by me in the past.

I hope, this helps somebody.
