Ubuntu is a well known desktop OS, which uses the Linux kernel, and its server release is getting quite popular as well. The reason is the fact that the operating system is extremely light and it'll function on almost any hardware with no issues, utilizing its resources to the maximum. Ubuntu is also pretty 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 protected and stable software environment on your server all the time. Also, Ubuntu has one of the biggest user communities globally, so if you experience any issue or have any kind of question, you'll discover a number of resources on the net. Among the key benefits of this Operating System is the fact that it features a great number of software packages that can be easily adjusted in accordance with your needs as well as the requirements of the applications which you wish to run, not to mention that you won't have to pay any license fees at all. In comparison, other Operating Systems are paid and their code isn't accessible, thus it can't be changed.
