Bushnell was asked why Ubuntu instead of say Fedora or openSUSE? He replied, “We chose Debian because packages and apt [Debian's basic software package programs] are light-years ahead of RPM (Red Hat and SUSE's default package management system.]” And, why Ubuntu over the other Debian-based Linux distributions? “Because it's release cadence is awesome and Canonical [Ubuntu's parent company] offers good support.”
"Release cadence" is in reference to how often new versions of the OS are released. Ubuntu issues new releases every 6 months, but also has a track that has a new version coming out every 2 years. That's a better track for businesses to handle. Also, notice that even Google needs to get support contracts from vendors.
