To what does the Debian OS owe its popularity? What has made it the Linux distribution of choice for countless server administrators?
Debian is an OS which uses the Linux kernel. Although it is usually set up on desktop machines, it is being used on a growing number of web servers too. The reason is that it is really stable, so a server running it won't need to be restarted for months. Debian is also regarded as being one of the most safe Operating Systems nowadays, as security patches are released within days after a problem is found. This is possible since thousands of well-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 through special e-mail lists and reply within 20 min to any question. In this light, you'll have 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 several Linux releases with the highest number of packages - more than 30,000. Since the Operating System costs nothing to use, you can modify both the core as well as all of the packages in the way you see fit. Also, you won't have to pay any license fees.
