Ubuntu is a widely used desktop Operating System, which uses the Linux kernel, but its server release is getting very popular too. The main reason is the fact that the OS is amazingly light and it can function on almost any hardware without issues, utilizing its resources to the max. Ubuntu is also really reliable and secure and all the Long-Term Support (LTS) editions are supported for at least five years, which warrants that you should have a safe and dependable software environment on your web hosting server all the time. Also, Ubuntu has one of the biggest user communities in the world, which means that if you experience any problem or have any question, you'll find plenty of resources on the web. Among the basic benefits of this Operating System is the fact that it comes with a great number of software packages which can be freely modified according to your needs and the needs of the applications that you wish to run, not to mention that you will not have to pay any kind of license fees at any time. In comparison, other Operating Systems are paid and their code isn't accessible, which means that it can't be changed.
