Ubuntu always let people do what they want to do, it pushes its users to know what they are doing, what they want and helps them learn what they ignore.
Ubuntu is simple, works out-of-the-box after installation and has a incredibly huge community behind.
Ubuntu is lightweight and open, in the way, that the user has access to free AND efficient applications (most of the time, without ads) and, even if learning its folder structure is challenging, once done, you are really able to call yourself "someone who knows what is in your computer".
Windows, in comparison, is heavy, tends to make decision for you and always enable tracking application by default. grr
It has a simple user interface, of course, but on the stability point of view, it is hard to compete with something simpler (even with less features).
Personal preference : I prefer something simple that works 99% of the time, than a full-featured auto-magical system that works 50% of the time (and ask if the good version of the driver is really installed...)
Coming from a Debian-based Linux background, using the Ubuntu base image for my Docker containers was a natural choice. However, the overhead, even on the impressively-slimmed Hub images, was hard to justify. Seeking to create images that were "just right" in size, without unused packages or dependencies, I made the switch to Alpine.
Alpine's modified BusyBox has a surprising amount of functionality, and the package repository contains plenty of muslc-safe versions of commonly-used packages. It's been a valuable exercise in doing more with less, and, as Alpine is keen to point out, an image with fewer packages makes for a more sustainable environment with a smaller attack surface.
My only regret is that Alpine's documentation leaves a lot to be desired.
I have used libvirt in every Linux hypervisor deployment I do. I frequently deploy RHEL or CentOS hypervisor servers with libvirt as the VMM of choice. It's installable via the guided setup for EL-based Linux distros, it uses minimal resources and overhead, integrates seamlessly with KVM and Qemu, and provides powerful CLI for advanced users and experts looking for automated deployments, or via VirtManager in your favorite Linux desktop environment. Best used with Linux VMs, it allows KVM and QEMU direct hardware virtualization access.

In so far as I deploy on a Linux host (without a container abstraction), I prefer working in Fedora and RHEL environments to Debian-based environments.
I like the adherence to upstream, strong free software stance, and good documentation from Fedora. Clients enjoy cutting edge software availability and a safe fallback to Red Hat Enterprise Linux or CentOS.
We use Ubuntu for our more bleeding-edge servers like the web-server that heavily rely on modern ciphers and negotiation protocols like ALPN, aswell as for things that are included within ubuntus package-sources, but not within debians.
For my homelab, stability doesn't matter as much and I would rather have the latest features, hence why I'm using Fedora Server instead of CentOS. Also, I like -and use- Red Hat-based distros more than others.
Excellent foundation by being based on Debian. But with excellent long term support for security updates in the LTS editions along with a huge community providing an unparalleled pool of community knowledge.
PrometheanTV server infrastructure runs on the Ubuntu Operating System. Ubuntu Server is used on various EC2 instances and Ubuntu Desktop is used by technical staff as a desktop development environment.
가장 대중적인 Debian 기반 Linux 배포판. 기존에는 그나마 쓸만한 데스크톱 환경을 밀고 들어와 많은 사람들의 추앙을 받았으나 그마저도 점점 산으로 가서 욕을 잔뜩 먹었다. 최근에는 빨간 모자의 자리를 넘보며 서버 사이드에서도 많이 쓰이는 중.
Widely used, large community and updated frequently. P.S: We use a slighly modified version of Ubuntu Server for database management.
As a nice Linux distro with Long Term Support and systemd .service files, which makes our app easier to deploy.
