Overall Satisfaction with Ubuntu Linux
Ubuntu Linux serves the following purposes for us:
- It is used on our deployment servers and the severs are used as OSS in multiple departments for deployment.
- It is used by employees on an individual level for development of applications, as it speeds up the process.
- It is also used as distro for WSL (Windows Subsystem for Linux) on individual workstations in case the VM option is not suitable.
- Process in Ubuntu Linux can be controlled, customized, and monitored so it's easy for expert developers.
- It is fast and easily scalable if used in conjunction with Docker, so applications that are deployed run fast and are easily scalable.
- It is open source, so errors are easily addressed and resolved quickly by a huge community of developers.
- Lots of customization brings complexity with it, so it is hard to ramp up with it. A built-in starter kit should be available for the users when installed.
- Not as much support for apps as Windows, so its reach should be widened.
- Debian Linux is better than Ubuntu Linux in terms of stability.
Ubuntu Linux was preferred over Windows because
- Lots of customizable options make it easy to control running processes
- Deployment of applications and micro services is easy when integrated with Docker, and Docker itself is not easy to use with Windows
- Applications are easily scalable in case of traffic surge or drop
