Each virtual or dedicated hosting machine has its own Operating System and operates separately from the hosting machines of other clients. Updating the Operating system is usually neglected, but doing that might have a wide range of benefits for your sites. The most important reason to use the most recent version is that patches are usually released to fix security holes inside the Operating System code, so if you don't install the updates, you risk individuals with harmful intentions to exploit these holes and to get access to your content. OS updates are also released for much better functionality of the system in general and for much better compatibility with the hardware on the market, which could instantly affect the efficiency of your websites. If the performance and the security of your scripts is the reason to update them, you may also know that their latest versions require an updated Operating System so as to function properly, thus keeping the OS up-to-date is always a good idea.
