Consider FreeBSD. It's more stable as a server than Linux (I've run both, so this is from personal experience), and after adding one patch posted in this mailing list, I haven't had any problems with FastCGI. I do most of my work in C and in Perl. Of my main two FastCGI apps, one has taken 10's of thousands of hits without a single logged error, getting stuck, etc, and the other has taken about half as many hits, and cored once (it's a chat room CGI, and is still in beta).
