Ubuntu Vs. CentOS/Fedora differences in command line
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: May 21, 2010
I am planning to have two linux home severs. One “always on” Ubuntu server with SAMBA, FTP, etc and another one CentOS/Fedora that boots up once a day, backups my Ubuntu server and shuts down. Both will be headless.
I have the Ubuntu Server up and running. Before I setup the CentOS/Fedora backup server, I would like to know:
1) how different CentOS/Fedora is from Ubuntu in terms of managing the server from command line.
2) Are the commands very different. I am willing learn a bit but is the difference so huge that it will take days for me to setup up the backup server?
3) Are the directory structures/files very different? For example, in Ubuntu I know where sources.list (/etc/apt/sources.list) is it the same in CentOS/Fedora or is it the same for most part?
I know Ubuntu uses deb and CentOS/Fedora uses rpm. Other than this what else might be different. I have no experience on a rpm based linux. I am fine managing my ubuntu server from command line. I can easily setup
Ubuntu vs CentOS

Now I'm looking for one enterprise distribution for servers and desktops. And I'm choosing between Ubuntu and CentOs.
Ubuntu is the best desktop and server solution, with many installations and good support. But there is no free systems management tool - Landscape server is not open and free.
CentOs - I've never worked with it before and I can't say something about it. But for CentOs there is open source system management tool - Spacewalk.
So, what would you advise me?
ubuntu vs. centos in a large web environment
location: linuxquestions.com - date: March 8, 2010
I have been a RPM-based distribution guy for a long time (redhat,centos,suse). We have a large shared and dedicated web environment that is starting to require more and more linux. I am in a position to switch gears and move to ubuntu if it makes sense. Things that are important to me are:
1. ease of deployment (both servers and websites themselves)
2. patch management
Ubuntu vs. CentOS for secure SaaS
location: linuxquestions.com - date: February 14, 2015
I'm a long time linux user. Mostly used CentOS over the years but also ubuntu here and there. We are a windows shop today but portions of our middle tier will be linux with docker containers. It's a PCI and HIPAA compliant environment so I'm focused on patch management, access management (e.g. integration with AD), etc. The environment is going to be pretty small < linux 20 servers. Any thoughts on this topic?

Ubuntu vs Fedora vs OpenSUSE
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: February 2, 2010
I know it is a Ubuntu Forum. I also know that folks in this forum love Ubuntu. Though Ubuntu is the most popular, Fedora and OpenSUSE is still "second" populars out there. I am wondering what will be your opinion about these three distros? How do you compare these three distros? Such as; which one is more easier, more beautiful, more stable, what are the pros and cons etc?
I've not tested anything other than Ubuntu and Mint. So I really wondering how much Fedora and OpenSUSE differ from Ubuntu? That's why I wanted to know your opinions guys.
Ubuntu VS Ubuntu Server VS Fedora VS Suse
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: January 2, 2009
Hello every one
I am setting up a webserver, I am paying a lot of money to host my website, it is only a personal website with some videos. I did some research but realized how sophisticated and hard setting up a server could be.
I am torn between Ubuntu, Suse and Fedora. I heard many good things about Ubuntu but not sure what is the difference between Ubuntu and Ubuntu Server.
I read online that Suse is not the best OS for running a server, and I am not familiar with Fedora.
For some reason I am with Ubuntu, but it is just my guts so I need a more accurate answer.
I am a bit confused, I really want to learn one of these OS but not sure were to start and not sure which one is better for my web server.
I appreciate any help
Thank in advance
Ubuntu vs Fedora: same font settings yet different look
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: May 26, 2009
I have two systems running side by side: Ubuntu 9.04 and Fedora 10. Both with GNOME, both out of the box with no customizations, same monitor, same video card.
I have set both to 96dpi resolution, size 10 font, and made sure all the other font settings were the same. Yet, for some unknown reason, Fedora's GUI fonts look so much smaller (which is what I want).
How come Ubuntu's settings don't match? I have tried changing the font size down to 8 or 9, but still can't match it. What gives?
Ubuntu Server Edition vs. CentOS?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: November 11, 2009
I've had dedicated servers hosting my websites for years now, though I admit I have no server administration or management experience. My dedicated servers are currently run off of CentOS 64-bit, though I am interested in using Ubuntu Server Edition 64-bit.
I'd like to compare and contrast the two, in terms of performance, ease of use, stability, and security. I know they are both Linux distributions but the two are based off of two different ones: Red Hat & Debian.
One day I would love to learn how to fully administer and manage my server myself. That's one of the reasons I'm leaning towards Ubuntu, because of its documentation and large community support forum. I just don't want to lose performance, security, or stability by switching from CentOS to Ubuntu Server Edition.
Can anyone really compare and contrast the two in a server environment? I've used Ubuntu as a desktop OS before, though I really didn't like it as much as openSUSE. Not only that but Ubuntu di
