Ubuntu is a preferred desktop OS, that uses the Linux kernel, but its server version is getting quite popular too. The main reason is the fact that the OS is very light and it'll run on almost any kind of hardware with no issues, utilizing its resources to the max. Ubuntu is also very reliable and secure and all Long-Term Support (LTS) releases are supported for at least 5 years, which warrants that you will have a risk-free and dependable software environment on your server all of the time. In addition, Ubuntu has one of the biggest user communities around the world, which means that if you experience any difficulty or have any question, you'll find numerous resources online. Among the basic benefits of this OS is the fact that it contains thousands of software packages which can be freely modified in accordance with your needs and the requirements of the applications which you want to run, not to mention that you will not have to pay any kind of license fees any time. In contrast, other Operating Systems are paid and their program code is not accessible, thus it cannot be changed.
