Best practice Linux system requirements for Atlassian suite?

I am planning on performing a greenfield on-premise install of Jira, Confluence, Crowd and BitBucket. 

I will be using Linux for the underlying infrastructure but I have a few questions on the "Recommended" Linux distribution and components to use with each service.

a)  What Linux distro is considered the "recommended" version?  RHEL? CentOS? Ubuntu?

b) Which current version of the Java Runtime Environment should I be using? 1.8?

c) Should I be using Apache for my web server, or can nginx be substituted?

Search for supported platforms and the application you are installing.

Here is JIRA Supported Platforms:

I I think you could use almost any Linux platform, so go with your favourite. Personally I like CentOS better.

Apache/Nxinx. Again it´s supported so really it´s up to you. I cooks down to what you know better i guess. Nginx has some performance advantage over Apache i think.

Java runtime. See the supported platforms. Only Oracle JRE/JDK is supported.
