To what does the Debian OS owe its reputation? What has made it the Linux distribution of choice for many server admins?
Debian is an OS that uses the Linux kernel. Though it is usually set up on personal computers, it's being used on a growing number of web servers too. 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 one of the most secure Operating Systems nowadays, due to the fact that security patches are released within days after a problem is discovered. This is possible since thousands of experienced developers work for 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 e-mail lists and respond within twenty minutes to any kind of question. Thus, you will enjoy top-level 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 the Linux releases with the highest number of packages - more than 30,000. As the Operating System is absolutely free to use, you can modify both the core and all the packages in any way you see fit. Also, you will not be required to pay any license fees.
