Going to UID 1000 for the first user is highly commendable, especially because Fedora yielded to others to create a de-facto standard where the standard was missing. Even though I use Fedora as my primary development environment, I have to keep Ubuntu on my hard drive to test problems reported by users. It's very convenient to have the same user ID on both, as I can move stuff between the user directories without root permissions. I'm going to convert to UID 1000 without waiting for the new Fedora.
