Centos vs Slim: What are the differences?
Developers describe Centos as "The Community ENTerprise Operating System". The CentOS Project is a community-driven free software effort focused on delivering a robust open source ecosystem. For users, we offer a consistent manageable platform that suits a wide variety of deployments. For open source communities, we offer a solid, predictable base to build upon, along with extensive resources to build, test, release, and maintain their code. On the other hand, Slim is detailed as "A PHP micro framework". Slim is easy to use for both beginners and professionals. Slim favors cleanliness over terseness and common cases over edge cases. Its interface is simple, intuitive, and extensively documented — both online and in the code itself.
Centos and Slim are primarily classified as "Operating Systems" and "Microframeworks (Backend)" tools respectively.
Slim is an open source tool with 9.95K GitHub stars and 1.84K GitHub forks. Here's a link to Slim's open source repository on GitHub.
MAK IT, RELEX Solutions, and Decision6 are some of the popular companies that use Centos, whereas Slim is used by Coderus, WebbyLab, and Die Coder GmbH. Centos has a broader approval, being mentioned in 352 company stacks & 304 developers stacks; compared to Slim, which is listed in 29 company stacks and 21 developer stacks.
Global familiarity, free, widely used, and as a debian distro feels more comfortable when rapidly switching between local macOS and remote command lines.
CentOS does boast quite a few security/stability improvements, however as a RHEL-based distro, differs quite significantly in the command line and suffers from slightly less frequent package updates. (Could be a good or bad thing depending on your use-case and if it is public facing)
