A recent report from VPShosting.com recently released a list featuring some of the top virtual private server operating systems, including Ubuntu VPS, Debian VPS, Windows Server 2008 VPS and CentOS VPS.
According to the report, Ubuntu is an elite VPS operating system because it provides developers and webmasters with a more user-friendly version of Debian. The report also said it is not currently noteworthy for popularity, but is quickly attracting attention.
Debian, on the other hand, is one of the more popular VPS operating systems because it was among the earliest Linux-based VPS systems, the report said. The report called it a modern and secure platform.
Windows Server 2008 is noteworthy, in part, because it is Microsoft's leading VPS OS, the report said. As a result, many companies adopt the solution because it is more familiar.
The report also included CentOS because it gives users a free and sophisticated Linux-based VPS operating system.
The developers on the Debian project recently announced the newest version of the product will be available sometime during the first week of February. The new version of Debian, called Squeeze, is noteworthy because it is the first version of the product without any non-free kernels.
