Debian is an Operating System that uses the Linux kernel. Although it is usually installed on desktops, it's being used on more and more web servers as well. The reason is that it is very stable, so a server running it will not have to be restarted for months. Debian is also regarded as being among the most risk-free Operating Systems nowadays, as security patches are released within days after a problem is found. This is possible because thousands of skilled 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 via special mailing lists and respond within 20 minutes to any question. Thus, you will obtain top-notch 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 distributions with the highest number of packages - over 30,000. Since the Operating System costs nothing to use, you can modify both the core and all of the packages in the way you see fit. Also, you won't have to pay any license fees.
