Debian is an Operating System that uses the Linux kernel. Although it is usually set up on desktops, it's being used on more and more web servers too. The reason is that it's really stable, so a server running it will not have to be restarted for months. Debian is also regarded as being one of the most protected Operating Systems to choose from, because security patches are released within days after a problem is found. This is possible because thousands of well-experienced 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 min to any question. In this light, you'll receive 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 among the Linux releases with the highest number of packages - more than 30,000. As the Operating System is free to use, you can modify both the core as well as any of the packages in any way you see fit. In addition, you won't need to pay any kind of license fees.
