Torque3D works on any Windows down to Windows XP and it should work on all halfway up to date major Linux distributions as well, I ran it on OpenSuse and Ubuntu, but had some issues with Debian, since Debian is usually very outdated when it comes to their packages etc.

So there should be no big problem, but with Linux Ubuntu is probably best supported, even though I would not recommend using it personally. I only compile on Ubuntu so my game will be compatible to the most Linux users, it is also what Steam supports.

I always go for the latest Ubuntu LTS version, but only to compile my game with, since it should bring the best compatibility, personally I don't use Ubuntu. For Server it does not really matter what Linux you use I think, if it runs, it runs. The most problems only arise, if you have to compile your game on Linux for other Linux users, but otherwise you can use what you want, it does not really matter, if it runs.

For example you can host on Linux or Windows and play with people on different versions of Linux and Windows at the same time in network, I never experienced problems there.
