Ubuntu is a widespread desktop Operating System, that uses the Linux kernel, and its server version is getting pretty popular as well. The main reason is the fact that the OS is really light and it can function on almost any kind of hardware with no issues, utilizing its resources to the maximum. Ubuntu is also very reliable and secure and all the Long-Term Support (LTS) releases are supported for at least five years, which warrants that you should have a protected and dependable software environment on your web hosting server at all times. Furthermore, Ubuntu has one of the largest user communities in the world, so if you experience any problem or have any question, you'll find plenty of resources on the net. One of the basic benefits of this OS is the fact that it has numerous software packages that can be freely modified in accordance with your needs and / or the needs of the applications that you wish to run, not to mention that you will not have to pay any kind of license fees at all. In contrast, other Operating Systems are paid and their code isn't accessible, therefore it cannot be changed.
