Ubuntu is a well-liked desktop OS, that uses the Linux kernel, but its server edition is getting quite popular as well. The main reason is that the operating system is amazingly light and it'll function on almost any hardware with no issues, utilizing its resources to the fullest. Ubuntu is also very reliable and secure and all of the Long-Term Support (LTS) versions are supported for a minimum of 5 years, which warrants that you will have a safe and dependable software environment on your server all the time. Furthermore, Ubuntu has one of the biggest user communities in the world, so if you experience any kind of problem or have any kind of question, you will discover plenty of resources on the net. One of the key advantages of this Operating System is the fact that it includes numerous software packages that can be freely adjusted according to your needs and / or the needs of the apps which you intend to run, not to mention that you won't have to pay any license fees at all. In contrast, other OS's are paid and their code isn't accessible, therefore it can't be changed.
