As with most Linux distributions Debian provides an excellent server or development platform and is completely FREE. Support is provided by the community over at Debian.org, or you can find companies offering additional support services for a fee.
Debian comes with the great APT package management system, extending the functionality of the 'dpkg' command utility, APT makes installing software, such as a web hosting server, from centralised repositories a simple process on your VPS. The 'apt-get' and 'aptitude' command line interfaces for APT are a great help in maintaining an up to date Debian VPS operating system and associated software packages.
