Ubuntu or CentOS as a base to Fluxbox?

Hello all,

I've recently started to like Fluxbox as my window manager and am wondering what would make a good base distro to use on it. I like both Ubuntu minimal and CentOS minimal (installs with no GUI or DE) and have them both in VMs with Fluxbox. I personally do not see any major differences between them (yum vs apt, software available, hardware detection) but I was wondering what are the main differences, if any, between these two in this situation, like is one less heavy, easier to configure via command line, etc...?
