Re: Why choose Ubuntu over Fedora?
This is not really a very unbiased place to post this question. If you post this in an Ubuntu forum, of course you're going to get a bunch of people saying Ubuntu is better. If you posted this in the Fedora forum, I'm sure they'd all be trashing Ubuntu and saying Fedora is better.
They are both great distro's. And contrary to popular belief, the Fedora forums are at least almost as active and helpful as the Ubuntu forums.
As far as I can see, there are 2 main differences.
1. The apt vs. rpm packaging system. Usually apt and deb's are considered more evolved than rpm's. But I don't think the "dependency hell" with rpm's and YUM is relevant anymore after advances that have been made.
2. Fedora is a lot more uptight about Free Software. If that's what you're after, then Fedora is great. But while Ubuntu is very Free Software minded, they make it much easier and more automated to get non-free stuff, like multimedia and driver support.
