Openstack Docs - Install OpenStack Section lists guides for many of the most popular distros.

If you are new to Linux, I would recommend Ubuntu as the distro has arguably the largest novice userbase to search for solutions to common problems against.

If you are new to just OpenStack, I would pick Ubuntu or RedHat. Your preference. Stick with what you are used to or what your current environment is made up of.

I agree with "use what's best for you". Don't forget CentOS as a license free alternative for a RedHat-clone for hobbyists.

I chose fedora, because centos doesn't have support netns in his kernel by default, which is needed for neutron. http://docs.openstack.org/trunk/training-guides/content/module002-ch002-openstack-networking-concepts.html
