Ubuntu is a widely used desktop OS, which uses the Linux kernel, and its server version is getting really popular too. The main reason is the fact that the OS is extremely light and it'll run on almost any hardware with no issues, utilizing its resources to the maximum. Ubuntu is also very reliable and secure and all of the Long-Term Support (LTS) versions are supported for a minimum of 5 years, which warrants that you should have a secure and dependable software environment on your server at all times. In addition, Ubuntu has one of the largest user communities around the world, so if you experience any issue or have any question, you'll find a number of resources on the net. Among the basic advantages of this OS is that it includes tens of thousands of software packages which can be freely changed in accordance with your needs and the requirements of the applications which 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 is not accessible, thus it cannot be changed.
