Depends on how you define "better"

Since you haven't revealed what you are currently using, really hard to say, but running a box without a spinning hard drive and fans to die, certainly is "better"
An OS that fits in < 1Gig might very well be "better than a bloated CentOS 5, 6 or what have you
If what you have works for you, then why even ask?
If it works, leave it alone.
You will certainly find 1000 opinions on the list, if any decide to take the bait
