    It is not actually a WordPress question,
    usually people are happy with whatever their hosting has to offer.
    Otherwise The best Linux distribution is the one which is preferred by your Guru., which can be rephrased to – the better software stack is the one you have most experienced with.

    In the matter of performance, i can equally name various solutions, they are +-
    when benchmarked, but the difference will be not really significant and will vary per set up.

    PHP: 7.x, the higher version, the better, PHP8 can offer JIT for 64-bit, you can gain some more performance with it.
    OpCode caching – mandratory, enough size to fit WordPress and plugins, around 40-64 Mb per WP installation.
    Assets caching and webserver – Nginx, Nginx+Varnish, Nginx+FastCGI cache (as page cache) or Varnish for page cache, or Redis as page cache
    some may prefer lighttpd or you may try with Caddy, it will be fun to compare, i guess.

    PHP SAPI – PHP-FPM, or LSAPI with LiteSpeed webserver

    If you use LiteSpeed (commercial) it can beat nginx (with default setup), but will be equal with nginx if you are expert.

    Object Caching – Redis or Memcached. Redis preferred (at my opinion)
