In any case, from my experience, it is certainly easiest to get everything up and running with an RPM-based distro.

Those systems can also be used as a guests (i.e. inside a VE).

The only thing that is "biased towards RPM" is vzpkg tools -- they can't currently manage debs, for example.

They have saved the day more than once when building a package has required removing the old one first or when the resulting package didn't work quite right the first time out...

Even if you don't run vBulletin, it might be worth it for you to install OpenVZ just as a test environment.
