Ubuntu is a preferred desktop Operating System, that uses the Linux kernel, and its server edition is getting quite popular too. The reason is that the OS is really light and it can run on almost any hardware with no issues, utilizing its resources to the maximum. Ubuntu is also pretty reliable and secure and all of the Long-Term Support (LTS) editions are supported for at least 5 years, which guarantees that you should have a risk-free and stable software environment on your server all the time. In addition, Ubuntu has one of the largest user communities worldwide, which means that if you experience any issue or have any question, you'll find lots of resources on the net. One of the main advantages of this Operating System is the fact that it features a large number of software packages that can be easily changed in accordance with your needs as well as the requirements of the apps which you want to run, not to mention that you will not have to pay any license fees at any time. In contrast, other Operating Systems are paid and their program code isn't accessible, which means that it cannot be changed.
