CoreOS vs Windows: 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, Windows is detailed as "A group of several graphical operating system families, all of which are developed by Microsoft". A series of personal computer operating systems produced by Microsoft as part of its Windows NT family of operating systems.
CoreOS and Windows can be categorized as "Operating Systems" tools.
SoFi, Astronomer, and Instamojo are some of the popular companies that use CoreOS, whereas Windows is used by Ericsson, iPhady, and House Extension Designs. CoreOS has a broader approval, being mentioned in 45 company stacks & 12 developers stacks; compared to Windows, which is listed in 10 company stacks and 33 developer stacks.
