Ubuntu is a widespread desktop OS, which uses the Linux kernel, and its server version is getting pretty popular as well. The reason is the fact that the OS is really light and it can function on almost any kind of hardware without issues, utilizing its resources to the maximum. Ubuntu is also really reliable and secure and all Long-Term Support (LTS) releases are supported for at least five years, which guarantees that you will have a risk-free and dependable software environment on your server all of the time. Also, Ubuntu has one of the biggest user communities worldwide, so if you experience any issue or have any question, you will find lots of resources on the Internet. Among the key advantages of this OS is that it features numerous software packages which can be easily modified in accordance with your needs and / or the needs of the apps that you'd like to run, not to mention that you won't have to pay any kind of license fees at all. In comparison, other Operating Systems are paid and their code isn't accessible, therefore it can't be changed.
