Debian vs Escher: What are the differences?

Developers describe Debian as "The Universal Operating System". Debian systems currently use the Linux kernel or the FreeBSD kernel. Linux is a piece of software started by Linus Torvalds and supported by thousands of programmers worldwide. FreeBSD is an operating system including a kernel and other software. On the other hand, Escher is detailed as "An Elm-like web framework for Julia". A web server for 2016. Escher's built-in web server allows you to create interactive UIs with very little code. It takes care of messaging between Julia and the browser under-the-hood. It can also hot-load code: you can see your UI evolve as you save your changes to it.

Debian can be classified as a tool in the "Operating Systems" category, while Escher is grouped under "Frameworks (Full Stack)".

Escher is an open source tool with 312 GitHub stars and 63 GitHub forks. Here's a link to Escher's open source repository on GitHub.

        Debian is our primary distribution for our game-servers for the time being. We plan to shift our infrastructure towards Docker-Containers/CoreOS though.
