Hello,
This is an excellent presentation of Ubuntu, there is only a missing section about ubuntu flavors, because UbuntuBudgie is a good example of nice linux desktop UI.

And there is only a single mistake for me :
This operating system is created and developed by the community, so you do not need to pay any kind of expense when downloading. Therefore, you can go directly to the home page to download this software immediately and install it on your computer.
Debian is created and developed by the community, but Ubuntu is developed by Canonical (a company). But that's a good example of business model, they are making money without asking to pay for their operating system.

I want to install Debian on my server. Is it similar to Centos?
The main difference is how each distribution is developed.

The Debian Project is an association of individuals who have made common cause to create a free operating system. This operating system that we have created is called Debian.
The CentOS Linux distribution is a stable, predictable, manageable and reproducible platform derived from the sources of Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL).
But it's only a matter of choice, both of them can be used for almost any usage.
