Every virtual or dedicated hosting machine has its own Operating System and operates separately from the hosting servers of other customers. Updating the Operating system is usually ignored, 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 fix security holes within the Operating System code, so if you don't install the updates, you risk individuals with malicious intentions to take advantage of these holes and to access your content. OS updates are also released for much better functionality of the system overall and for much better compatibility with the hardware available on the market, which can directly influence the performance of your sites. If the efficiency 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 so as to work properly, so keeping the Operating system up-to-date is always recommended.
