Ubuntu is a preferred desktop OS, that uses the Linux kernel, but its server release is getting very popular too. The main reason is that the operating system is very light and it'll 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 the Long-Term Support (LTS) versions are supported for at least five years, which guarantees that you should have a secure and dependable software environment on your hosting server at all times. 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 numerous resources on the Internet. One of the major advantages of this OS is that it contains numerous software packages which can be easily customized in accordance with your needs and / or the needs of the apps which you want to run, not to mention that you will not have to pay any kind of license fees at any time. In comparison, other OS's are paid and their program code is not accessible, thus it can't be changed.
