Read why the Debian Linux distribution is so extremely favored and why a lot of server admins choose it for their machines.
Debian is an OS which uses the Linux kernel. Although it is usually set up on desktop machines, it's being used on an increasing number of web servers as well. The reason is that it's really stable, so a server running it won't need to be restarted for months. Debian is also considered to be among the most secure Operating Systems to choose from, because security patches are released within days after an issue is discovered. This is possible because thousands of qualified developers are employed by 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 mailing lists and respond in 20 min to any question. In this light, you'll get 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 among the Linux distributions with the highest number of packages - over 30,000. Since the Operating System is completely free to use, you can modify both the core as well as all of the packages in any way you see fit. Furthermore, you won't have to pay any kind of license fees.
