Debian is an OS that uses the Linux kernel. Although it is usually installed on desktops, it is being used on more and more web servers as well. The reason is that it is really stable, so a server running it won't need to be restarted for months. Debian is also considered to be one of the most protected Operating Systems you can get, as security patches are released within days after an issue is found. This is possible because thousands of qualified developers are employed by the Debian project on a voluntary basis and not only do they work on the OS itself, but they also provide 24/7 support via special e-mail lists and reply within twenty minutes to any kind of question. Thus, you will enjoy top-level 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 the Linux releases with the highest number of packages - more than 30,000. As the Operating System is completely free to use, you can modify both the core as well as all the packages in any way you see fit. In addition, you will not have to pay any kind of license fees.
