If you get a server of your own, it will run 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 isn't always considered fundamental, it can be a really important task for several reasons. A more modern Operating system version might have better support for specific hardware, so you may get better performance for the sites and web apps which you install. Your server shall also be more secure because updates usually include security patches which fix small issues which may allow unauthorized people 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.
