I was read this part of the official documentation about ubuntu

The basic steps to install Ubuntu Server Edition are the same as those for installing any operating system. Unlike the Desktop Edition, the Server Edition does not include a graphical installation program. The Live Server installer uses a text-based console interface which runs on the default virtual console.

they are said the ubuntu server edition unlike the Desktop Edition

My question what are the different between Desktop Edition and Server edition and Live sever or I am wrong can you orient me about the versions ?

I saw this answer in quora

live server

  • Desktop versions include a DEsktop; ie. a GUI. Server editions don't waste the resources and just use keyboard & screen (text). If you skip this fact, they install different packages (biggest differences is still the DE/gui packages) but that's only part.

Both the server and desktop install iso run as a live system.

The desktop includes a graphical desktop environment that you can use to web surf , email, edit text files, etc in addition to installing ubuntu with the desktop of choice. The desktop edition uses a graphical installer that runs on the desktop or you can run the installer without booting to a desktop.

The server is for installation only and runs a graphical installer that runs in a console, rather than a desktop. There is no live server environment, ie it does not run Apache or other servers, install media only.

See What's the difference between the server version and the desktop version? for additional details.
