CoreOS vs Ubuntu: What are the differences?
Developers describe CoreOS as "Linux for Massive Server Deployments". CoreOS is designed for security, consistency, and reliability. Instead of installing packages via yum or apt, CoreOS uses Linux containers to manage your services at a higher level of abstraction. A single service's code and all dependencies are packaged within a container that can be run on one or many CoreOS machines. On the other hand, Ubuntu is detailed as "The leading OS for PC, tablet, phone and cloud". Ubuntu is an ancient African word meaning ‘humanity to others’. It also means ‘I am what I am because of who we all are’. The Ubuntu operating system brings the spirit of Ubuntu to the world of computers.
CoreOS and Ubuntu can be primarily classified as "Operating Systems" tools.
"Container management" is the top reason why over 18 developers like CoreOS, while over 215 developers mention "Free to use" as the leading cause for choosing Ubuntu.
According to the StackShare community, Ubuntu has a broader approval, being mentioned in 1845 company stacks & 1709 developers stacks; compared to CoreOS, which is listed in 45 company stacks and 12 developer stacks.
