Debian is an Operating System which uses the Linux kernel. Even though it is usually set up on desktop computers, it's being used on more and more web servers as well. 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 risk-free Operating Systems available, because security patches are released within days after an issue is found. This is possible since thousands of qualified developers are part of 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 e-mail lists and reply in 20 min to any kind of question. In this light, you will obtain top-notch 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 distributions with the highest number of packages - over 30,000. Since the Operating System is free to use, you'll be able to modify both the core as well as all the packages in any way you see fit. Also, you won't be required to pay any license fees.
