Every virtual or dedicated hosting machine has its own Operating System and operates independently from the hosting servers of other customers. Updating the OS is frequently overlooked, but doing that could have quite a lot of advantages for your sites. The most important reason to employ the most up-to-date version is that patches are typically released to deal with security holes inside the Os code, so if you don't install the updates, you risk people with destructive intentions to take advantage of these holes and to access your content. OS updates are also released for much better functionality of the system in general and for much better compatibility with the hardware on the market, which can instantly influence the efficiency of your sites. If the functionality and the security of your scripts is the reason to update them, you might also discover that their most up-to-date versions require an updated Operating System to be able to operate effectively, consequently keeping the Operating system up-to-date is always a good idea.
