Likelihood to Recommend

Android

Huge collection of supported free apps in Play Store. Supports a wide range of devices. Extremely customizable. Available for mobile and tablet devices, even for desktops and virtual machines.

CentOS Linux

For the same type of tasks/roles that I have been using, I would definitely recommend CentOS for my colleagues. 9 out of 10 because it is a very stable and secure solution, but for some different tasks, there are lots of other Linux OSes that could be a better fit. For example, RHEL sometimes has better support of software vendors. Or, Ubuntu-like systems are better for GUI and desktop experience.

Pros

Android

  • Android allows you to customize a lot of things.
  • Using Android SDK allows you to get apps not in the app store.
  • It is very affordable.

CentOS Linux

  • Built on the same source code as RHEL. Each version has been thoroughly tested and customizable.
  • CentOS provides a rock-solid basis for applications that rely on maximum uptime. This has helped our services to maintain excellent availability.
  • While commercial support contracts are available, the project has a huge following/community and is always willing to assist.

Cons

Android

  • Lacking in maturity in terms of security handling and ecosystem.
  • Lacking in quality management of apps in Play Store.
  • Lacking in virus protection.
  • Lacking in battery management- several background apps keep running and eating the power.

CentOS Linux

  • CentOS is not a great desktop platform. Although some would disagree with that statement, I think that CentOS is better suited to life as a server.
  • Since CentOS is community-supported some software vendors will not officially support it because it isn't Red Hat.

There have been only two times that I have needed to contact Android support for technical issues and both times I received some support. I received more helpful tips from Youtube, so I now bypass support and try to do most of our troubleshooting on my own with these support videos online.

Again, written documentation is excellent, even on the older versions. The support community is the best. It is comprehensive and I would say that it global because it transcends national boundaries. Also, you find all types of people using CentOS to do all sorts of things so you are bound to find someone to talk to if there are problems.

Alternatives Considered

Android

Android allows users to customize their systems. It is very simple to use and there are a lot of devices running it. The interface has been improving a lot since Android Lollipop and it has been becoming more useful.For developers, Android gives more possibilities and the license for distributing your app is cheaper than the Apple Software Developer Program.

CentOS Linux

For our development environment, we evaluated CentOS against Ubuntu and SLES, and actually did not end up picking CentOS, as our developers found it primitive compared to the niceties offered out of the box from Ubuntu. In addition, our developers found that Ubuntu had an extensive user community, meaning they could very easily find support if needed from user forums. At that point, CentOS was a non-starter and we didn't move forward.

Return on Investment

Android

  • We have an Android mobile app and our customers have downloaded more than 5.000 instances in less than two months.
  • With the app our customers don't need to go to our offices to get a support or service.

CentOS Linux

  • CentOS has just been a positive impact on our company. We have a fast, secure and reliable web server that has the same standards as the Enterprise version of Red Hat.
  • The biggest positive for me personally working as a System Admin is that I don't have to do anything with this server on a daily basis. It does what it is supposed to do for us every single day. Once a month, I run "yum update" and see if there are any updates and install as needed.
