Ubuntu is a preferred desktop OS, that uses the Linux kernel, and its server edition is getting very popular too. The reason is that the OS is extremely light and it will run on almost any hardware without issues, utilizing its resources to the maximum. Ubuntu is also really reliable and secure and all the Long-Term Support (LTS) editions are supported for at least 5 years, which guarantees that you will have a safe and stable software environment on your hosting server at all times. In addition, Ubuntu has one of the biggest user communities globally, which means that if you experience any problem or have any question, you'll discover a number of resources on the net. One of the key advantages of this Operating System is the fact that it has tens of thousands of software packages that can be freely adjusted in accordance with your needs and the requirements of the applications that you want to run, not to mention that you won't have to pay any license fees any time. In comparison, other OS's are paid and their program code is not accessible, thus it cannot be changed.
