Debian is an Operating System that uses the Linux kernel. Although it is usually set up on desktop machines, it is being used on a growing number of web servers as well. The reason is that it's very stable, so a server running it will not need to be restarted for months. Debian is also considered to be among the most protected Operating Systems to choose from, as security patches are released within days after an issue is discovered. This is possible since thousands of well-trained developers are employed by the Debian project on a voluntary basis and not only do they work on the OS itself, in addition, they provide 24/7 support by using special e-mail lists and respond within 20 min to any kind of question. In this light, you will enjoy an outstanding level of support directly from the developers who know their own platform in detail, and not from a third-party support team. Debian is also among the Linux releases with the highest number of packages - over 30,000. Since the Operating System is completely free to use, you'll be able to modify both the core as well as any of the packages in any way you see fit. In addition, you won't be required to pay any kind of license fees.
