Linux is the name of kernel. CentOS, debian, fedora, ubuntu are distros which use linux kernel as the underlying OS kernel. Commonly they are also called as Linux (OS). And these distributions use differing applications in a sense. Though they have some same apps.

Wahidullah Hamidi why do you ask this question? Maybe if we can get a bit of background on your goals then we can improve your understanding.

Ultimately, what are you trying to achieve?

Cheers

What is the difference between cars and a Ford is analogous to the OP's question.
