If you get a server of your own, it will work independently, so it will have its own Os and you could later install server side apps directly or script-driven websites via a hosting Control Panel. Even though keeping the Os updated isn't always considered a necessity, it can be a very important task for a variety of reasons. A more modern Operating system version might have better support for specific hardware, so you may get better performance for the websites and web applications that you install. Your server will also be more protected since updates usually include security patches that fix small issues which may enable unauthorized individuals to access your content. Last, but not least, newer script versions, which are also released for both increased security and for additional features, may need a later version of the Os in order to work effectively and with their full capabilities.
