Debian is an Operating System that uses the Linux kernel. Though it is usually installed on desktops, 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 will not need to be restarted for months. Debian is also regarded as being one of the most risk-free Operating Systems nowadays, due to the fact that security patches are released within days after an issue is found. This is possible since thousands of skilled developers are part of the Debian project on a voluntary basis and not only do they work on the OS itself, in addition, they provide 24/7 support through special e-mail lists and respond within 20 minutes to any kind of question. Thus, you'll obtain 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 one of several Linux distributions with the highest number of packages - more than 30,000. As the Operating System is completely free to use, you'll be able to modify both the core as well as all of the packages in the way you see fit. Furthermore, you won't be required to pay any license fees.
