Debian is an Operating System that uses the Linux kernel. Although it is usually installed on desktop computers, it is being used on an increasing number of web servers too. The reason is that it's very stable, so a server running it won't need to be restarted for months. Debian is also considered to be among the most safe Operating Systems nowadays, due to the fact that security patches are released within days after an issue is found. 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, in addition, they provide 24/7 support via special mailing lists and respond in 20 minutes to any question. In this light, you'll have 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 - over 30,000. Since the Operating System is free to use, you will be able to modify both the core and all of the packages in any way you see fit. In addition, you won't have to pay any license fees.
