Every virtual or dedicated server has its own Operating System and functions independently from the hosting machines of other clients. Updating the Operating system is often ignored, but doing that could have a wide range of benefits for your sites. The most important reason to use the most recent version is that patches are typically released to repair security holes within the Operating System code, so if you do not install the updates, you risk individuals with destructive intentions to exploit these holes and to get access to your content. OS updates are also released for improved functionality of the system in general and for much better compatibility with the hardware on the market, which can instantly affect the efficiency of your sites. If the performance and the security of your scripts is the reason to update them, you could also find out that their latest versions require an updated Os so as to work properly, therefore keeping the OS up-to-date is always a good idea.
