Fedora vs Lever OS: What are the differences?

Developers describe Fedora as "Operating system based on the Linux kernel, developed by the community-supported Fedora Project". Fedora is a Linux-based operating system that provides users with access to the latest free and open source software, in a stable, secure and easy to manage form. Fedora is the largest of many free software creations of the Fedora Project. Because of its predominance, the word "Fedora" is often used interchangeably to mean both the Fedora Project and the Fedora operating system. On the other hand, Lever OS is detailed as "Serverless meets Microservices". Lever OS is the open-source cloud platform that allows fast-moving teams to build and deploy microservice-oriented backends in the blink of an eye. It abstracts away complicated infrastructure and leaves developers with very simple, but powerful building blocks that handle scale transparently.

Fedora and Lever OS can be primarily classified as "Operating Systems" tools.

Lever OS is an open source tool with 990 GitHub stars and 47 GitHub forks. Here's a link to Lever OS's open source repository on GitHub.

        #ATComputing

        Since #ATComputing is a vendor independent Linux and open source specialist, we do not have a favorite Linux distribution. We mainly use Ubuntu , Centos Debian , Red Hat Enterprise Linux and Fedora during our daily work. These are also the distributions we see most often used in our customers environments.

        For our #ci/cd training, we use an open source pipeline that is build around Visual Studio Code , Jenkins , VirtualBox , GitHub , Docker Kubernetes and Google Compute Engine.

        For #ServerConfigurationAndAutomation, we have embraced and contributed to Ansible mainly because it is not only flexible and powerful, but also straightforward and easier to learn than some other (open source) solutions. On the other hand: we are not affraid of Puppet Labs and Chef either.

        Currently, our most popular #programming #Language course is Python . The reason Python is so popular has to do with it's versatility, but also with its low complexity. This helps sysadmins to write scripts or simple programs to make their job less repetitive and automating things more fun. Python is also widely used to communicate with (REST) API's and for data analysis.

        Fedora

        We use Debian and its derivative Ubuntu because the apt ecosystem and toolchain for Debian packages is far superior to the yum-based system used by Fedora and RHEL. This is large part due to a huge amount of investment into tools like debhelper/dh over the years by the Debian community. I haven't dealt with RPM in the last couple years, but every experience I've had with RPM is that the RPM tools are slower, have less useful options, and it's more work to package software for them (and one makes more compromises in doing so).

        I think everyone has seen the better experience using Ubuntu in the shift of prevalence from RHEL to Ubuntu in what most new companies are deploying on their servers, and I expect that trend to continue as long as Red Hat is using the RPM system (and I don't really see them as having a path to migrate).

        The experience with Ubuntu and Debian stable releases is pretty similar: A solid release every 2 years that's supported for a few years. (While Ubuntu in theory releases every 6 months, their non-LTS releases are effectively betas: They're often unstable, only have 9 months of support, etc. I wouldn't recommend them to anyone not actively participating in Ubuntu the development community). Ubuntu has better integration of non-free drivers, which may be important if you have hardware that requires them. But it's also the case that most bugs I experience when using Ubuntu are Ubuntu-specific issues, especially on servers (in part because Ubuntu has a bunch of "cloud management" stuff pre-installed that is definitely a regression if you're not using Canonical's cloud management products).

        How developers use Fedora and Lever OS
        Avatar of Brandon Adams
        Brandon Adams uses FedoraFedora

        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.

        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.
