We used this solution to do an integration between one of our PMS, property management systems. We integrated Opera and a cloud-based system. We use it as an interface between the Opera system, which is on a Windows server, and cloud bases system.

It is used for everything. We use it for our mail server and cloud solution server. You can also use it as an Active Directory (AD) Server instead of a Windows Server.

I'm responsible for building and providing container environments, and, therefore, I need to install and configure Kubernetes clusters on Linux operating systems. We use Ubuntu as a base operating system for the Kubernetes cluster and container environments.

We are a solution provider and we recommend this product to our customers. We also use it internally. Ubuntu provides us with a computer server, allowing us to combine our software code and different projects to produce graphics. This operating system is suitable for cloud computing.

I support a group that works with artificial intelligence. I install the machines for them and they do the customization. Some use Python, some use Java, some use other languages. They install their own IDs, their own products, their own systems and I deal with the operating system and support it. I'm a lead Linux administrator.

We're using Ubuntu in a number of different ways and I even have a server for the main controller that's running Ubuntu so that people can authenticate and do various other things internally. I started using Linux a very long time ago and it wasn't Ubuntu. Ubuntu just happened to be the friendliest, nicest solution out there. It is also the easiest to sell to other people. One of the things I like about this solution is that you can leave it without having to boot into a rescue mode at one of your servers. You don't have to change permissions or go through nightmarish scenarios to solve technical issues.

Some of my customers use Red Hat, some of them use Debian, and some of them use Ubuntu. Ubuntu is popular for ordinary customers and some of our clients use Ubuntu. I have experience with most main distributions, such as SUSE, Ubuntu, Red Hat, CentOS, and Debian.

I used it before on my laptop, and I was quite happy with it. I had to change back to Windows 8 when we got a new product which is not supported by Linux. To show our product to our customers, I had to go back to Windows. I still have an older laptop which is using the Ubuntu version on it. I am still quite happy with it. I have not had so many compatibility problems between Ubuntu and Windows as I have had with Mac.

Ubunto Linux is a complete Linux operating system that is freely available with both community and professional support. This solution is suitable for both desktop and server use. It has a very appealing GUI that makes it very easy for users coming from a Windows ecosystem to understand. Ubuntu Linux makes for a really great, soft introduction to Linux. Ubuntu Linux has some very demanding system requirements, though. There are many software applications that Ubuntu Linux does not support, which makes some collaborations difficult. It also has some reliability issues and can be a bit buggy. Oracle Linux is flexible, robust, reliable, and scales easily. Of the many offered features, we like Ksplice best, as it allows us to update the Kernal without a reboot. Oracle Linux offers regular updates and patches which help support great security. The GUI on Oracle Linux is not very attractive. The download speed is not good, and they could also improve their server capacity. Oracle Linux needs better integrations. It only works with Oracle products. It can also be a bit expensive to use. Conclusion: Ubunto is an African word that means “humanity to others” and also represents the expression “I am who I am because of who we all are.” Ubuntu Linux takes this meaning very seriously. It is free (they plan to keep it that way forever) and is very user-friendly, especially when compared to other Linux distributions, and offers excellent community support. If you are new to the Linux ecosystem, Ubunto Linux is a great place to start. Oracle Linux is very flexible and secure and is the best choice for enterprises already running on Oracle or planning to migrate to Oracle solutions.

Oracle Linux is an Enterprise product with Server level features. Ubuntu is a Desktop platform not a mature product. only for small business developers applications. not much stable as oracle Linux. if you to run 3rd party server software Oracle Linux usually have better support than Ubuntu. Oracle Linux is a corporate world, But Ubuntu try to fill this gap but still lack of technology stack in server world

@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!
