In attempt after attempt my Ubuntu experience has been better than my Fedora experience. I am running Fedora on my desktop and Ubuntu on my laptop. I have been able to get wireless and mp3 playback operational in half the time it has taken me on my desktop and now, after a week of effort on Fedora, I still cant print. In my first attempt on Ubuntu I was able to get the spiffy CUPS test page to print. I am about to attempt the scanner driver install, but my confidence is high that this to will be a straight forward install.
I am very impressed with everything Ubuntu so far - keep up the outstanding work!
