Ubuntu is a widespread desktop Operating System, which uses the Linux kernel, but its server release is getting pretty popular as well. The main reason is that the OS is amazingly light and it can run on almost any hardware without issues, utilizing its resources to the maximum. Ubuntu is also very reliable and secure and all the Long-Term Support (LTS) versions are supported for a minimum of five years, which guarantees that you should have a risk-free and stable software environment on your server all the time. In addition, Ubuntu has one of the largest user communities globally, so if you experience any problem or have any question, you'll discover a number of resources on the web. One of the main advantages of this Operating System is the fact that it contains a large number of software packages which can be freely modified in accordance with your needs and the requirements of the applications that you intend 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 program code is not accessible, which means that it cannot be changed.
