For tor, it really doesn't matter, since building it from source is
really easy.
So use a distribution that is a) safe, b) fits your needs, c) you feel
comfortable with.
As a server environment, SUSE or OpenSUSE have proven themselves (among
many others). For home/office use Ubuntu has become very popular since
it is very easy to set up. And then there's my favorite, gentoo - a real
allrounder, quite fast and (AFAIK) safe.
But that's just a couple of distributions I've been working with; there
are many others out there. Depending on what you want to do with it, my
suggestions might or might not be good choices.
But again, for tor developement, any distribution will probably do.
