Ubuntu is a popular desktop Operating System, that uses the Linux kernel, and its server version is getting very popular as well. The reason is the fact that the OS is amazingly light and it will function on almost any kind of hardware without any issues, utilizing its resources to the max. Ubuntu is also pretty reliable and secure and all of the Long-Term Support (LTS) releases are supported for a minimum of five years, which warrants that you should have a secure and stable software environment on your hosting server all of the time. Furthermore, Ubuntu has one of the largest user communities worldwide, which means that if you experience any issue or have any question, you'll find a number of resources on the net. Among the major advantages of this OS is the fact that it contains thousands of software packages that can be easily changed according to your needs and / or the needs of the applications that you would like to run, not to mention that you will not have to pay any license fees at any time. In comparison, other OS's are paid and their code is not accessible, thus it cannot be changed.
