Ubuntu is a widely used desktop OS, that uses the Linux kernel, but its server version is getting very popular too. The main reason is that the OS is amazingly light and it will function on almost any hardware without any issues, utilizing its resources to the max. Ubuntu is also really reliable and secure and all Long-Term Support (LTS) versions are supported for a minimum of 5 years, which guarantees that you should have a protected and stable software environment on your hosting server all the time. In addition, Ubuntu has one of the largest user communities around the world, which means that if you experience any kind of problem or have any question, you will find lots of resources on the net. One of the main benefits of this Operating System is the fact that it comes with numerous software packages that can be easily customized according to your needs and / or the needs of the applications which you need to run, not to mention that you won't have to pay any kind of license fees at all. In comparison, other Operating Systems are paid and their program code isn't accessible, which means that it cannot be changed.
