Ubuntu is a widely used desktop OS, that uses the Linux kernel, and its server version is getting very popular too. The reason is the fact that the OS is amazingly light and it will run on almost any kind of hardware with no issues, utilizing its resources to the fullest. Ubuntu is also extremely reliable and secure and all Long-Term Support (LTS) versions are supported for a minimum of five years, which warrants that you should have a risk-free and dependable software environment on your web hosting server all the time. Furthermore, Ubuntu has one of the biggest user communities on earth, which means that if you experience any problem or have any question, you will discover lots of resources on the Internet. One of the key benefits of this Operating System is the fact that it comes with a large number of software packages that can be freely modified according to your needs as well as the requirements of the applications that you want 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, which means that it can't be changed.
