Learn why the Debian Linux distribution is so favored and why many server admins choose it for their machines.
Debian is an Operating System that uses the Linux kernel. Though it is usually installed on desktop computers, it's being used on a growing number of web servers as well. The reason is that it's very stable, so a server running it won't have to be restarted for months. Debian is also considered to be among the most risk-free Operating Systems nowadays, because security patches are released within days after a problem is discovered. This is possible because thousands of skilled 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 in 20 minutes to any question. In this light, you'll have top-notch support directly from the developers who know their own platform in depth, and not from a third-party support team. Debian is also one of several Linux distributions with the highest number of packages - over 30,000. As the Operating System is free to use, you're able to modify both the core and all of the packages in any way you see fit. In addition, you won't have to pay any kind of license fees.
