Ubuntu is a Linux-based Operating System and belongs to the Debian family of Linux. As it is Linux-based, so it is freely available for use and is open source. It was developed by a team “Canonical” led by Mark Shuttleworth. The term “ubuntu” is derived from an African word meaning ‘humanity to others. The Chinese version of Ubuntu is used for running the world’s fastest supercomputer. Google’s self-driving car uses the stripped version of ubuntu.
Red Hat Enterprise Linux or RHEL, is a Linux-based operating system that is designed for businesses. It is the successor of Fedora’s core. It is also an open-source distribution like fedora and other Linux operating systems. It is more stable than Fedora but less cutting-edge as compared to Fedora. Red Hat is generally sold through the annual and monthly subscription which includes technical support and the Red Hat network. It was introduced in 1994 and it is mainly developed for corporate purposes. It is more stable among all the other Linux-based operating systems.
