Probably any of them would work. AFAIK, they all offer 1U machines with
Linux pre-installed. If you buy one of those models without an OS, you
should pretty much be able to install any Linux distro you choose so
long as its kernel provides the right drivers. IOW, as long as your
distro of choice has a kernel at least as new as the one they ship you
should be fine.
FWIW, when I bought some 1U servers from Dell they were offering RHAS as
the only supported Linux version. I opted to buy it without any OS and
installed Debian without any surprises.
