Overall Satisfaction with Ubuntu Linux

We utilize Ubuntu [Linux] daily for management of our local and cloud infrastructure. We deploy Ubuntu into cloud instances from multiple providers, and use it run our networks, applications, and services for our clients. We also frequently deploy an Ubuntu Server virtual machine for our clients to use as an on premises backup target.
  • Deep development community ensuring maximum compatibility.
  • Abundant user community that provides excellent support.
  • Best implementation of Debian-based Linux that we've used.
  • Frequently breaking changes are introduced with major revisions of the OS. We stick with the LTS branch to mitigate that.
  • Managing multiple servers can become cumbersome without paid solutions.
  • Running servers has never been so stable and cost effective.
  • Removing cost from the scenario shoots margin through the roof in client deployments.
I've used other Linux distributions like Debian, Mint, Suse, Slackware, and others. I also ran OpenBSD as my primary OS for more than 3 years. We maintain FreeBSD based servers as well. Other than Debian, the supported hardware and packages doesn't seem as good as with Ubuntu Linux.
