See why a lot of system admins head straight for Debian whenever selecting an Operating System for their servers.
Debian is an OS that uses the Linux kernel. Although it is usually set up on desktops, it's being used on a growing number of web servers as well. The reason is that it's really stable, so a server running it will not have to be restarted for months. Debian is also considered to be among the most protected Operating Systems in existence, due to the fact that security patches are released within days after an issue is found. This is possible because thousands of qualified developers work for the Debian project on a voluntary basis and not only do they work on the OS itself, but they also provide 24/7 support through special mailing lists and respond within 20 minutes to any question. In this light, you'll get top-notch support directly from the developers who know their own platform in detail, and not from a third-party support team. Debian is also one of several Linux distributions with the highest number of packages - more than 30,000. Since the Operating System is free to use, you are able to modify both the core as well as all the packages in any way you see fit. Also, you won't need to pay any kind of license fees.
