Debian is an Operating System that uses the Linux kernel. Although it is usually installed on desktops, it is being used on an increasing number of web servers too. The reason is that it is very stable, so a server running it will not have to be restarted for months. Debian is also considered to be among the most risk-free Operating Systems you can get, due to the fact that security patches are released within days after an issue is discovered. This is possible since thousands of well-experienced developers work for the Debian project on a voluntary basis and not only do they work on the OS itself, they also provide 24/7 support by using special mailing lists and respond in twenty minutes to any question. In this light, you'll enjoy top-level 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 will be able to modify both the core as well as all of the packages in any way you see fit. Also, you will not be required to pay any license fees.
