We understand your dilemma here and believe us this is one of the most commonly faced trouble by customers new to Linux environment.
There are more than 50 flavors of Linux available in the market of which some of the most common are Fedora, CentOS, Ubuntu, Linux Mint, Debian, etc.
Ubuntu is largely known for its stability and the huge list of features it offers. It has a lot of features by default which can make your life easier. But at the same time, this also makes the OS heavier than other distros.
It is one of the most popular versions of Linux and if you are looking for an incredibly powerful environment that is reliable and safe then Ubuntu is the right choice.
Ubuntu came into existence only in 2004 and already leading the market in popularity.
On the other hand, we have CentOS that is often considered free version of Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL).
What makes CentOS attractive is that every version serves for over 10 years, which is something you won't find with other distributions. CentOS is packed with very fewer features than you might know compared to other distributions. However, this works out in favor of CentOS because this makes it relatively lightweight. If you're simply looking for a lightweight distribution to host a website or web app, CentOS is a great choice.
