QUESTIONS MUST BE PROGRAMMING RELATED

Ubuntu

GENERAL UBUNTU SUPPORT IS OFF-TOPIC

Smaller recent wheezy

Quality Example
More recent

"I m in debian wheezy which is much more recent than ubuntu 10.04"

from question "Why does Linux grep not give the correct count for line breaks?"

Smaller

"I believe ubuntu is smaller debian wheezy smaller still or even alpine for tiny start point"

from question "How do you add items to .dockerignore?"

Others

Quality Example
Nicer frontend

"Ubuntu has nicer frontend and could be more suitable for windows emigrants while debian is more for backend guys"

from question "Linux Setup Machine for PHP/MySQL Development"

More resources

"Ubuntu heavily relies on python scripting and generally consumes more resources than debian"

from question "Linux distribution for a programmer's private server"

More stable

"As for debian being more stable than ubuntu for using as server it can be true in very rare occasions where the package is very obscure"

from question "* (no title is found for this review)"

Newer

"This is because ubuntu 15.10 uses a newer version of libc and libstdc++ which is not available on debian 8"

from question "Could not find Qt platform plugin 'xcb' on Debian 8.3"

"Since ubuntu 10.10 is newer than debian squeeze if you can do it on squeeze you can certainly do it on ubuntu"

from question "Python 2.7 on Ubuntu"

Kernels harder

"Recompiling ubuntu kernels is harder -- it will require working with debian build tools"

from question "File Access (read/write) synchronization between 'n' processes in Linux"

Far less

"Ubuntu is far less conservative than debian so you will get closer to the bleeding edge"

from question "Solaris/FreeBSD vs. Linux for Java development"

Image smaller

"The main advantage of the debian image is the smaller size รข it clocks in at around 85.1 mb compared to around 200 mb for ubuntu"

from question "Docker AUFS... underlying fs... optimization by mount option?"
