FreeBSD on UNIX
FreeBSD is developed by the University of California and is being used by major MNCs like Sony and Nokia. The platform powers the great Yahoo! Website as well. This operating system is constructed to work under the most stringent workloads and is capable of managing memory efficiently without negotiating the response times in spite of 1000+ user processes.
This OS is a sub outlet of the traditional RedHat. Over time, this OS has replaced RedHat Linux. It is developed and maintained by a community of developers called the Fedora Project. These developers are actively related to RedHat, and a huge chunk of RedHat Linux code is based on the Fedora OS.
Community Enterprise Operating System or CentOS is very similar to Fedora. This OS is also based on the RedHat code. Even though, Fedora is sponsored by RedHat, the CentOS derives its source code from REHL to offer a free enterprise level OS. The developer community provides all support for CentOS.
Debian Operating System is a Linux/UNIX hybrid OS which is free out of the box. The OS uses the Linux kernel at core, but embraces most of the Operating System tools from GNU project. Debian is still in its premature state, and it could soon evolve into a fully UNIX based OS. One of the added advantages of Debian is that it contains more than 25k precompiled software packages that are ready for installation.
Ubuntu is based on the Debian Operating System, but does not have the added benefit of 25k ready to use precompiled software packages. Instead, it has different versions like the Ubuntu Server Edition (Which is not free). The basic Ubuntu OS is free, and it is fully sponsored by Canonical.
