By default, Ubuntu only enables a repository of software that they will support. The rest of the packages are in the "universe" repository, which is a check box away in Synaptic. I think universe contains everything in sid and then some, but I might be wrong.
As for switching to it from FC3, I don't really see an incentive to. I'm a fan of .deb based distros, so that's what drove me to Ubuntu. For Hoary, it seems like the developers have taken in interest in Mono and Gtk# apps, so it'll be easy to install Beagle, Muine and Tomboy, the latter two of which I can't live without. Other than that, it all seems the same to me with different package management slapped on.
