There are many tangible reasons why someone would choose to use Linux. The first being that most distributions (commonly referred to as “distros”) are free and the second being that those most distributions are customizable to a T.
But perhaps the best reason to use Linux is the more intangible one: it’s fun. You can spend days working on creating the best build to suit your personal or business needs—unrestricted by the limitations of some of the other more popular operating systems (OS) like Windows or Mac OS.
Here are a few benefits of Linux that most people fall back on when trying to explain their reasonings for using Linux.
Made in the early 1970s by developers Ken Thompson, Dennis Ritchie, Brian Kernighan, Doug McIlroy, and Joe Ossanna, the Unix operating system was designed to make using the computer a more interactive experience for the user.
Unix was the first operating system that modernize the way we use computers today. Users of any Windows, Linux, or Mac OSX servers can thank Unix as each of those operating systems were developed from the basic source codes of the Unix operating system, making Unix the father of the modern operating system.
The secure and stable Red Hat Enterprise operating system was created by the Linux operating system development team to provide enterprises with a reliable operating system that is backed by a professional network.
Ubuntu was created using the Linux operating system and is distributed freely to anyone who wants to download it. Running the Ubuntu operating system on a dedicated server enables the server to be fully customized at a much higher degree than it normally would with a commercial based operating system.

FreeBSD is a highly advanced operating system that is x86 and x64 compatible. The original version of the operating system, Berkeley Software Distribution (BSD), was developed on a UNIX operating system at the Berkeley University of California.
Today, it is the most commonly used open-source BSD, with over three-quarters of all BSD systems being FreeBSD.
Since its development, it has evolved thanks to the support of an avid community. Now our dedicated FreeBSD servers are the most advance operating system out on the market today.
It offers advanced networking, performance, security, and compatibility features that are still lacking in most operating systems out on the market. (READ MORE)
CentOS is a free Linux distribution which is derived from Red Hat Enterprise Linux.
This powerful OS was created to provide users with a free enterprise level operating system by eliminating the cost of software licensing fees.
It is basically a free clone of the Red Hat Enterprise Linux OS and offers most of the benefits that the Red Hat Network has to offer thanks to the amazing support of its online community.
Users of the CentOS Dedicated Server can feel safe knowing that the operating system will continue to be developed and supported. (READ MORE)
Fedora is an operating system distribution based on the Linux kernel and sponsored by Red Hat. It’s also a type of hat.
Fedora Linux is free, open sourced, and backed by a lively and knowledgeable community.
Known for focusing on innovation, Fedora has maintained a reputation throughout the years for being a “cutting edge” operating system with a focus on the early adoption of new technologies and a six-month release cycle.
Because of this, most older (and finally stable) versions of Fedora become the next officially licensed Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) distribution—making Fedora a massively popular build, some postulate second only to Ubuntu. (READ MORE)
The Debian operating system is a free Linux distribution that comes precompiled with over 43,0000 packages which enable you to easily edit documents, play games, and write software.
Debian comes with a package manager, or Advanced Package Tool (APT), named Dpkg, which makes Debian stand out from other Linux distributions. APT allows the user to manage thousands of packages on as many computers as easily as if they were installing one application.
Gentoo Linux is yet, another free operating system that is highly customizable. It’s a favorite in the secured server community because of developer’s’ commitment to security.
