Ubuntu is a well-liked desktop Operating System, that uses the Linux kernel, and its server edition is getting really popular too. The main reason is that the operating system is extremely light and it'll run on almost any hardware without issues, utilizing its resources to the fullest. Ubuntu is also extremely reliable and secure and all of the Long-Term Support (LTS) releases are supported for a minimum of five years, which warrants that you should have a risk-free and stable software environment on your server at all times. In addition, Ubuntu has one of the largest user communities on the planet, so if you experience any problem or have any question, you'll discover numerous resources on the net. Among the basic benefits of this OS is that it has a large number of software packages which can be freely changed in accordance with your needs as well as the requirements of the apps which you need to run, not to mention that you won't have to pay any kind of license fees at all. In contrast, other Operating Systems are paid and their code is not accessible, therefore it cannot be changed.
