Updating the Operating system is usually ignored, but doing that could have quite a lot of advantages for your sites. The most important reason to use the newest version is that patches are frequently released to deal with security holes within the Operating System code, so if you do not install the updates, you risk individuals with malicious intentions to use these holes and to gain access to your content. Operating system updates are also released for enhanced performance of the system in general and for far better compatibility with the hardware available on the market, which could instantly impact the functionality of your sites. If the efficiency and the security of your scripts is the reason to update them, you could also find out that their most up-to-date versions require an updated Operating System in order to function properly, so keeping the Operating system up-to-date is always recommended.
