Each virtual or dedicated server has its own Operating System and operates independently from the servers of other customers. Updating the OS is often overlooked, but doing that could have lots of benefits for your sites. The most essential reason to employ the most up-to-date version is that patches are usually released to deal with security holes inside the Operating System code, so if you don't install the updates, you risk people with destructive intentions to exploit these holes and to get access to your content. Operating system updates are also released for enhanced efficiency of the system overall and for better compatibility with the hardware available on the market, which could immediately impact the efficiency of your sites. If the functionality and the security of your scripts is the reason to update them, you might also find out that their most recent versions require an updated Operating System in order to function properly, consequently keeping the Operating system up-to-date is always a wise idea.
