Ubuntu is a preferred desktop OS, which uses the Linux kernel, and its server release is getting very popular as well. The reason is the fact that the operating system is very light and it can run on almost any kind of hardware without any issues, utilizing its resources to the max. Ubuntu is also very reliable and secure and all of the Long-Term Support (LTS) versions are supported for at least 5 years, which warrants that you will have a risk-free and stable software environment on your web hosting server at all times. Also, Ubuntu has one of the largest user communities worldwide, so if you experience any issue or have any kind of question, you'll discover a number of resources on the Internet. Among the main advantages of this OS is that it includes a great number of software packages that can be easily changed according to your needs as well as the needs of the apps that you'd like to run, not to mention that you will not have to pay any license fees at all. In comparison, other Operating Systems are paid and their code is not accessible, therefore it can't be changed.
