got to drive home*

The most common server by far is Ubuntu 14.04

there are some other versions of ubuntu that people use: 12 if they have older systems/dependencies and 16.04 will start to be common in ~1-2 years (major libraries are still testing systems on it). Other linux flavors are used as well there is Red Hat (not sure of the exact versions for that) and Amazon Linux (a linux os made by aws). Although Amazon Linux is simple and nice, it has the downside of only being supported by aws (not terrible, but it can linux options)
I recommend staying away from windows servers, the only reason they have a large market share is due to legacy systems and companies that haven't ported their infrastructure over to linux

Overall Ubuntu 14.04 is currently the best option in my opinion. It has the most support from software libraries, so you can usually find a guide for what your are trying to do if you use it. And soon (but NOT AT THE MOMENT) Ubuntu 16.04 will be a good option
@VictorHall Hope that answers your question

That's just operating systems, did you have any other questions regarding servers?

what do you think will happen to companies who haven't migrated over to linux yet?
@davidjcastner

The companies that haven't migrated are generally large companies where migrating is either too costly or not possible, so it's not like they will just go bankrupt. But it's a dying technology, similar to but not nearly as drastic as internet explorer

It's one of those that, if you have to maintain or can only use windows servers, you use them. But if you are starting something new or can easily port the system, then use linux
