Each virtual or dedicated server has its own Operating System and works independently from the servers of other customers. Updating the Operating system is usually neglected, but doing that may have quite a lot of advantages for your sites. The most significant reason to use the most up-to-date version is that patches are usually released to repair security holes inside the Operating System code, so if you do not install the updates, you risk individuals with destructive intentions to take advantage of these holes and to access your content. Operating system updates are also released for much better efficiency of the system as a whole and for far better compatibility with the hardware available on the market, which can immediately impact the performance of your sites. If the performance and the security of your scripts is the reason to update them, you might also discover that their newest versions require an updated Os so as to work effectively, thus keeping the OS up-to-date is always wise.
