Which Linux/Unix OS should I use?


I've got some old trashy computers and computer parts (and like 30 hard drives) that I got for for free from a local business here where I live that was closing. I've just had them stored in the basement but I'm not planning on trying to do something with them.

I was wondering though, would you guys have any suggestions on which Linux/Unix OS I should be using?

I don't plan on doing anything too big. Maybe just use it for file storage for myself, as well as having FTP access so I can access it remotely.

What do you guys think? Does it matter which OS I use? Is there any OS that is faster considering the computer(s) I'll be using won't be that strong?
