Ideally, I would like to have the following: Server edition * ZFS on the root (be able to natively install ZFS when carrying out the installation without hacking it together) * Install grub at the start of the installation (it often can fail at the end of the installation causing some uphill but nothing major) Desktop Edition * More game support, specifically anti-cheat software is lacking support and hampering gaming on Linux * More Nvidia GPU driver support * Better WiFi driver releases from Intel * More Themes

Ubuntu Linux could improve by having more out-of-the-box functionality for common plug-and-play devices, such as printers. It's sometimes more difficult to plug-and-play printers with Ubuntu Linux. You need to work a bit and make some drivers work. They need to work a bit on plug-and-play devices.

We don't have enough information about this system. When we run into problems, we'd like for it to be more clear what a valid solution might be. For example, if I try to deploy a certain technology, I have to look all over the internet to figure out how to accomplish this. There aren't enough experts in my country to be able to help troubleshoot or to post answers to problems. I'm not sure if there are enough domestic or regional experts who know enough about the solution. The interface could be better.

I have certain misgivings about the policy of Ubuntu. They put business related packages into the universe branch of the distribution, which means that they will be upgraded without consideration for the package maintainer. Ubuntu Linux should put more of the applications and modules that are important for enterprise usage into the main branch, so updates could be more reliable. Ubuntu is putting great efforts into making their platform a great hosting platform for Kubernetes and other related tools, but they are not addressing the challenges with what it takes to run Ubuntu in a large Windows-based environment. I recommend that Ubuntu Linux integrates more into active directory environments when it comes to authentication. There are solutions to make it run, but those are sometimes quite tedious, and it would be beneficial if Ubuntu Linux integrated more for large Windows-based environments.

If you are in the middle of an update, and things are disrupted, it can cause issues. You need to wait for the update to complete before doing anything. Windows we can handle by ourselves when it comes to troubleshooting, however, Ubuntu is a bit difficult. We need some other technical person to troubleshoot things for us. It's kind of difficult to maintain as compared to Windows. In general, Windows is easier to use and friendlier to deal with than Ubuntu.

We don't have any support, so we search for answers online. However, it can sometimes be a little messy to find the information if you have a highly specific question or a strange problem. It would be nice if finding information were a little simpler. Maybe they could have some portal that could point you to where you can find information. I think that's more of a general issue with open-source stuff. That's how it works.

Ubuntu could be improved with more container integration and orchestration of those containers. We are looking to have more cloud-based solutions, like Docker, and container-based solutions, or Kubernetes-based solutions integrated with Ubuntu. Instead of going for VMs, we would like to have more container-based solutions on top of Ubuntu.

While there are not many features which need to be added, we sometimes are forced to resort to Google Drive sync or OneDrive sync, owing to the lack of availability of certain Microsoft solutions. The team is disparately comprised nowadays, some of whom may be using Microsoft. This would, in turn, require one to use Microsoft himself and there is some compatibility which is simply lacking. Generally speaking, it's okay. Nowadays, everything is moving to the cloud, making browser-based usage easy. It would be nice to see more compatibility with certain Microsoft solutions, such as OneDrive. One would want to sync OneDrive, in which case, when the client makes the data available there, we would have easy access to it. These kind of syncing features are not fast.

The only improvement I would suggest is to switching back to Aptitude. They switched a lot of the packages that used to be running in Aptitude to Snap. I don't find them as usable when they are in Snap. The most obvious instance of this is that it's caused me to have issues with Chrome. Starting Chrome took a couple of seconds before it was up and running, which wasn't pleasant. Back when it used to run packaging in Aptitude, I didn't have this problem. I know they're familiar with these issues because a lot of other people have experienced them too.

Ubuntu, as a distribution itself, is filled up with a lot of bloated software. That is the main reason why enterprise companies, mainly in the US, prefer to go with Red Hat, and SUSE is preferred mainly in Europe. Red Hat and SUSE provide less bloat on their OS. Ubuntu is based on Debian, which is the first Linux distribution to ever come into existence, or the first mainstream Linux distribution. Debian also is bloated with a lot of software and sometimes some of the software is old. I would love to see Ubuntu strip down. They have a server edition that is stripped down. Instead of having a billion different distributions, why can't there just be one? This would improve Linux and I would love to see this happen. One of the reasons people don't use Ubuntu on servers is because they are not as secure as Red Hat. They could be more secure, but for them to be more secure, you need to strip the bloatware. Bloatware is when you have several applications that are not needed and already installed in the operating system. They have a server edition and that comes stripped of the bloatware.

If you update certain models, it's not as easy at times. My main issue with Ubuntu Linux is that there are too many ways to administrate Linux. The config file can be changed in many ways, but with other solutions, there is only one way to configure the system. In Linux, there are too many ways to configure it. My colleague configures in one way and I configure in another way, which makes it confusing. They should unify the way to configure the Linux systems. You can change the ATC conflict file. You can change some distributions in another way. You have to look on many sites if you like to know why and why the configuration is set for in that way.

There should be more integration with other operating systems applications. It would be beneficial if there was a way to install Mac OS software on Linux. They could create a software patch to be able to have most of the unique Mac OS applications run on it, not Windows applications. They need to create something more user-friendly.

The new releases of OpenStack are much faster than Ubuntu. However, the commitment of the OpenStack project is not supported in Ubuntu in the first instance. If the Ubuntu community can package and manage new releases of OpenStack packages, it will be really good. Management monitoring and interface could be better. I also feel it could be improved overall in terms of the dashboard, technical support, pricing, stability, scalability, and performance. They could try to package more new releases of OpenStack, and that would be much better.

For the beginner who might not be very comfortable with the tool, it can be frustrating. Like with any new solution, it's complex in the beginning. The solution has limited application support compared with Windows and MacOS. It's not an issue with the system itself, it's the choice of the company that makes the software. It's a marketing decision made by the manufacturer. Most games I run are designed to be run for Microsoft Windows. It doesn't run many softwares that we have online. You don't have many games on Linux, but Linux is not the problem, it's a choice the developer has made.

It is an open-source tool, and it doesn't have any support. If there is an issue with the implementation of a feature, such as clustering, I am not sure how to resolve it and get support for it. The stability of the vendor packages also impacts the stability of this solution. When vendor packages are unstable, or any packages are broken, they also impact Ubuntu Linux. It is very hard to resolve an issue related to unstable vendor packages.

While for the most part, I am quite happy with the new developments on the solution, from my perspective (and as a user or a solutions architect), the product needs to keep on doing enhancements according to the needs sprouting out of recent developments in technology. There should be a CI/CD process for all software that it is on the market. Overall, the solution offers me exactly what I need. I'm not really missing any features. You need a lot of bandwidth during the initial setup in order to pull from the repository. Without good bandwidth, you'll get cut off and the implementation will fail.

it sometimes happens that when you upgrade, the network card deactivates. the "Network-manager" network service must be restarted to allow the server to be able to reconnect to the network. this is a situation that I have experienced several times. Therefore if it is a novice it could be compromising for him. I think it would be important to improve this so that the network service or even any other service is not stopped after an upgrade.

What I think could be improved greatly is the support for the majority of hardware vendors like ATI, Nvidia, and all the other vendors producing hardware and supplying perfect drivers for Windows operating system, but they don't care much for Linux. Canonical are doing a great job, but the third-party support and the vendors should be paying more attention to the Linux operating system, not only with Microsoft drivers and so on. I'd like to see better support for graphic drivers and support from the hardware lenders when they next provide an update. I believe the third-party vendors are putting their efforts in development for the operating system that has better penetration among users. Unfortunately, they're not paying too much attention because not so many people are using Linux at the moment. It's not their priority. Another aspect might be that the vendors don't like to put a lot of effort into their support and drivers for Linux, because the community that uses Linux is geared towards open source software, and the vendors are rarely happy about that. Still, most of the vendors put their major efforts into the Microsoft ecosystem. I believe it's all due to the market penetration, but it would be great if we could see improvement in this area.

I would love to see more, open documentation and a bigger ecosystem. I think Ubuntu's main strength, as opposed to using the other Linuxes, has been its ability to encourage user feedback. I think that's something that can always be improved. So it's just about keeping that open and increasing the certainty in IT because IT needs to know what we're going to stick with. When you decide to make an architectural change, it may be better to get community feedback first, and maybe then announce it in a different way. I don't think it's very technical and the community feedback route should be looked at or be improved. They might also add additional features, like something to tweak the home desktop a little bit for new users.

I prefer to use Debian instead of Ubuntu because Debian is the main distributor. Debian is more stable than Ubuntu. In some projects, I have had some problems with Ubuntu Linux. I finally figured out the root cause. It goes back to repositories. On Ubuntu, you can use main repositories and the source of a package that you install from. If you change repositories, you will get trouble and have difficulties with Ubuntu. Ubuntu should create some specific features, like Red Hat. Red Hat has provided many features for open-source, like FreeIPA. I can centralize the management and policy management. It's very good, like Microsoft. That has an active directory, a special directory service for the customers. I'm looking for enterprise features. I'm looking for specific features in the storage area, in the file system area. I'm looking for management solutions, integration solutions, like SUSE and Red Hat.

I'd like their updates to be better and some other official programs, as well as the user interface. They aren't as user-friendly as Microsoft. The solution can use a better UI.

The portal for the active directory needs to be improved. I cannot include my work station as I want to the active directory to the Microsoft domain. The solution could be better integrated with Microsoft.

If I run an application, I need it to show up in Microsoft, so Microsoft can run in Ubuntu. It needs to connect better with Microsoft products.

I am really very satisfied with this solution. However, one thing that I would like to see improve, is to have better support for multiple screens with multiple resolutions. For me, that is the most important feature.

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!
