  • Any of them? [editline]29th July 2013[/editline] As long as you can get SteamCMD on the VPS and transfer/reinstall all your stuff, any of them will do. although, I think the Standard versions are probably the best to go for.
  • Please don't make the mistake of using windows as a platform for running servers. Sure, The GUI functionality is great, But you will get better performance and manageability with a Linux Distro. The other advantage is that Linux is free to use. But if you have your heart set on windows, Any version will do. Windows 2008 R2 is a safe choice if you don't have prior experience though.
  • I went with Windows 2012 Standard. I used Linux before hand but it had two issues: 1) Steamcmd would not work. 2) Some gamemodes will not run.

Use a real server OS, like CentOS or Arch. It's harder, but it'll give you better performance than either Windows or Ubuntu.

Arch is a minimal linux distribution, which is great if you're trying to save RAM and hard drive space. It's not meant for servers but it's not a bad choice. CentOS is really the way to go in terms of Linux servers though.
