Personal preference, really. I haven't done any metrics, but I can say with some degree of certainty that the difference between any *BSD is sure to be negligible. OpenBSD is probably the crowd favorite, mainly because it's easy to strip down and secure as hell with minimal tinkering. Speed might be a debatable topic, if we were talking *BSD vs. [Insert MS Crap Operating System Here], but since we're not...
Why not try 'em all and see what you like? It won't cost you anything!
