I have nothing against Red Hat or Fedora but you should go into using their distribution with your eyes wide open. Ubuntu like Debian is a community distribution. Fedora on the other hand is a distribution to get end-users to participate in free QA for Red Hat Enterprise Linux. The features included and direction of the Fedora project are in direct relation to the interests of Red Hat and the features included in the Red Hat Enterprise Linux software. This is not a community distribution. You are only able to participate as free QA, not as a developer, maintainer, or committee member.
Debian and Ubuntu in this case allows the community to decide the direction and focus of the development of their distribution and is not using a large group of individuals to replace a missing QA department within the Red Hat corporation in Massachusetts.
