Ubuntu is a widespread desktop OS, that uses the Linux kernel, but its server edition is getting quite popular too. The main reason is that the operating system is very light and it can run on almost any kind of hardware without any issues, utilizing its resources to the maximum. Ubuntu is also extremely reliable and secure and all of the Long-Term Support (LTS) versions are supported for at least 5 years, which warrants that you should have a risk-free and stable software environment on your server all of the time. Furthermore, Ubuntu has one of the biggest user communities in the world, which means that if you experience any difficulty or have any kind of question, you will find a number of resources on the Internet. Among the key benefits of this Operating System is that it contains a large number of software packages that can be freely modified in accordance with your needs as well as the requirements 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 contrast, other Operating Systems are paid and their code is not accessible, therefore it can't be changed.
