If you get a server of your own, it will operate independently, so it'll have its own Operating System and you could later install server side apps directly or script-driven sites via a hosting Control Panel. Although keeping the Operating System updated is not always considered an absolute necessity, it can be a quite important task for a number of reasons. A more modern Operating system version may have better support for certain hardware, so you might get better performance for the sites and web apps that you install. Your server will also be more secure since updates normally include security patches that resolve small issues which may enable unauthorized individuals to access your content. Last, but not least, more recent script versions, which are also released for both boosted security and for additional features, may require a later version of the Operating System in order to work properly and with their full capabilities.
