Ubuntu is a well-liked desktop OS, that uses the Linux kernel, and its server edition is getting very popular as well. The reason is that the operating system is very light and it'll run on almost any hardware without any issues, utilizing its resources to the maximum. Ubuntu is also pretty reliable and secure and all the Long-Term Support (LTS) releases are supported for a minimum of 5 years, which guarantees that you will have a secure and dependable software environment on your hosting server all of the time. In addition, Ubuntu has one of the biggest user communities around the world, so if you experience any problem or have any question, you will discover numerous resources on the net. One of the basic benefits of this OS is that it has thousands of software packages which can be freely adjusted in accordance with your needs and / or the requirements of the apps that you'd like to run, not to mention that you won't have to pay any kind of license fees at all. In comparison, other OS's are paid and their code isn't accessible, thus it can't be changed.
