Given the choices of potentially having LC IDE running as the ‘live’ software stack on the server itself (which is not the best way to run it, but potentially a method that is usable for our purposes perhaps).

You're dangerously close to getting into religious wars here <g>
But for my money (ask any three linux devs and you'll get ten answers) 
I'd install the latest debian build, verify that everything's working, 
and leave it at that. I don't expect you'd get any surprises that way, 
but if you do then I'd back down to the latest ubuntu build.

That said, I'm running the latest linux mint cinnamon on a ubuntu base, 
and I tend to push the engine to its limits. I can always find ways to 
get into trouble, but I have to work at it. Otherwise rock solid.

...and the usual caveats apply, of course. No browser or media support.
Hope this helps.
