Ubuntu vs iOS: What are the differences?

Ubuntu: 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; iOS: A mobile operating system by Apple. It is the operating system that presently powers many of the mobile devices, including the iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch. It is designed to make your iPhone and iPad experience even faster, more responsive, and more delightful.

Ubuntu and iOS belong to "Operating Systems" category of the tech stack.

reddit, Instacart, and Asana are some of the popular companies that use Ubuntu, whereas iOS is used by Wirtualna Polska, Appinventiv, and AtrizASoft. Ubuntu has a broader approval, being mentioned in 2566 company stacks & 9731 developers stacks; compared to iOS, which is listed in 5 company stacks and 5 developer stacks.

Decisions about iOS and Ubuntu

Ubuntu is much more faster over Windows and helps to get software and other utilities easier and within a short span of time compared to Windows.

Ubuntu helps to get robustness and resiliency over Windows. Ubuntu runs faster than Windows on every computer that I have ever tested. LibreOffice (Ubuntu's default office suite) runs much faster than Microsoft Office on every computer that I have ever tested.

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)

At the moment of the decision, my desktop was the primary place I did work. Due to this, I can't have it blow up on me while I work. While Arch is interesting and powerful, Ubuntu offers (at least for me) a lot more stability and lets me focus on other things than maintaining my own OS installation.
