Every virtual or dedicated hosting machine has its own Os and functions independently from the hosting machines of other customers. Updating the OS is often neglected, but doing that may have lots of advantages for your sites. The most significant reason to employ the most recent version is that patches are typically released to deal with security holes inside the Operating System code, so if you don't install the updates, you risk people with destructive intentions to exploit these holes and to get access to your content. OS updates are also released for improved functionality of the system in general and for better compatibility with the hardware available on the market, which could directly influence the functionality of your websites. If the efficiency and the security of your scripts is the reason to update them, you could also find out that their newest versions require an updated Os to be able to work effectively, thus keeping the OS up-to-date is always recommended.
