Doing any kind of benchmark between an OS developed exclusively for workstation (Windows10) and an OS developed mostly for Servers doesn’t make any sense.

"Benchmarks" is an ambiguous term. Are you referring to security benchmarks or performance benchmarks? In either case, which specify type of benchmark are you looking for?

Hello community,  I am currently researching operating systems. What are the differences between RHEL 9 and Windows 10 operating systems and which application is best suited for enterprise deployment? Thank you for your help!

The difference is basically apples and oranges. RHEL is a Linux distribution – an operating system consisting significantly of open-source components – while Windows is a wholly proprietary operating system. Asking "Which is best" is kind of a meaningless question. Absent specific evaluation criteria, the answer is, at best, going to be "It depends".

Red Hat Enterprise Linux is fantastic. It is an inexpensive solution that has excellent security, performance, and stability, and also lots of features. I specifically like that the solution has features that simplify adoption for non-Linux users, which makes it easier for administrators too. RHEL also has good customer support. In addition, RHEL enables me to deploy current applications as well as emerging workloads across all virtualized hybrid cloud and multi-cloud environments, which I find to be very helpful. Besides the stability and reliability of the OS, it provides a great user experience. Moreso, the fact that it is open-source and leading the open-source market trends and technologies speaks for itself. Although RHEL has a lot to offer, sometimes it can be difficult during disaster recovery. But if you know that ahead of time, you can plan accordingly. And their documentation definitely has room for improvement. In the past I have used Centos. Generally it was good, but the reason why I switched was because it used to be very stable and now it is not. Its operating system used to be great but when the updates came out, something changed. Additionally, if you are new to using Centos, the initial setup is not that straightforward unless you have prior experience with Linux and know your way around. (In which case installation won’t be difficult.) I also found that CentOS didn’t scale as well as I expected it to. For my needs, I was also hoping it would have more options built into the wizard. Conclusion: Although CentOS is a very efficient product and is very powerful with a lot of capabilities, I would still recommend RHEL. On a scale of one to ten, I would rate RHEL an eight. As someone who has used other systems, I can say from experience that Red Hat is one of the best - specifically in terms of its ability and consistency of the operating system.

@Netanya Carmi,This is an insightful article.  But in my opinion, Rocky Linux (as a potential successor) of CentOS, will be the next big thing in the open-source world, as already many solutions are supporting it though only the BETA version for now.  Still, your article is quite a heads up. Thanks!

I too would like to see this list expand to all of the relevant Linux distributions. I'm really surprised to see Oracle Linux on here and not see Rocky or Alma. As is shown in this chart generated from data provided by the Fedora project: https://rocky-stats.tiuxo.com/static/el_by_distro_line.png Rocky and Alma are far more relevant and widely used than Oracle.
