Debian is an Operating System which uses the Linux kernel. Even though it is usually set up on desktop computers, it's being used on an increasing number of web servers as well. The reason is that it is very stable, so a server running it won't have to be restarted for months. Debian is also regarded as being among the most protected Operating Systems you can get, since security patches are released within days after a problem is discovered. This is possible since thousands of qualified developers are part of the Debian project on a voluntary basis and not only do they work on the OS itself, they also provide 24/7 support through special e-mail lists and respond in 20 minutes to any kind of question. In this light, you will 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 the Linux releases with the highest number of packages - more than 30,000. Since the Operating System is free to use, you can modify both the core as well as any of the packages in the way you see fit. In addition, you won't be required to pay any kind of license fees.
