Ubuntu is a widely used desktop Operating System, that uses the Linux kernel, and its server edition is getting quite popular as well. The main reason is that the operating system is amazingly light and it will function on almost any hardware without any issues, utilizing its resources to the max. Ubuntu is also very reliable and secure and all Long-Term Support (LTS) editions are supported for at least five years, which guarantees that you should have a safe and dependable software environment on your server all of the time. Also, Ubuntu has one of the biggest user communities worldwide, which means that if you experience any issue or have any question, you will find plenty of resources online. One of the key benefits of this OS is the fact that it comes with numerous software packages which can be easily customized according to your needs and the needs of the apps that you would like to run, not to mention that you won't have to pay any license fees at any time. In contrast, other OS's are paid and their code isn't accessible, which means that it can't be changed.
