Debian is an Operating System that uses the Linux kernel. Even though it is usually set up on desktop computers, 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 won't need to be restarted for months. Debian is also considered to be one of the most safe Operating Systems available, due to the fact that security patches are released within days after an issue is found. This is possible because thousands of experienced 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 via special mailing lists and reply in 20 minutes to any question. In this light, you'll receive an outstanding level of 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 distributions with the highest number of packages - more than 30,000. Since the Operating System is completely free to use, you are able to modify both the core and all of the packages in the way you see fit. Also, you will not need to pay any license fees.
