Debian is an OS which uses the Linux kernel. Though it is usually installed on personal computers, it's being used on more and more web servers too. The reason is that it's really stable, so a server running it will not need to be restarted for months. Debian is also considered to be one of the most risk-free Operating Systems to be found, as security patches are released within days after an issue is found. This is possible because thousands of well-experienced developers are working for the Debian project on a voluntary basis and not only do they work on the OS itself, but they also provide 24/7 support through special mailing lists and reply in 20 minutes to any kind of question. In this light, you'll obtain 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 among the Linux releases with the highest number of packages - over 30,000. Since the Operating System costs nothing to use, you can modify both the core as well as all the packages in any way you see fit. Furthermore, you will not need to pay any license fees.
