Debian upgrades usually go pretty smooth.  Some programs make major
changes between revisions so some config files will need updating.
I haven't had a Debian upgrade that was a disaster yet (can't say that
about RedHat or Ubuntu).

Debian is the best for servers with low RAM.  Debian and Centos are
the two big server distributions these days, but Ubuntu is also popular.
