Ubuntu is also extremely reliable and secure and all the Long-Term Support (LTS) editions are supported for at least five years, which guarantees that you should have a risk-free and dependable software environment on your website hosting server all of the time.

In comparison, other OS's are paid and their program code isn't accessible, therefore it cannot be changed.
