Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu By all means, Ubuntu Linux and Canonical Ltd. have made a spectacular arrival on the Linux scene lately. The combination is like a dream come true for many, many Linux aficionados: tightly selected bleeding edge packages to focus the distribution on a single CD, corporate backing, 18 month support, that all sounds like a formidable package.

" Redhat System Utilities vs. the brand-new Gnome System Utilities (which are very good in my opinion),"

Aren't the Gnome System utilities just using Red Hat's code? If not its odd that they look like exact copies of what Red Hat developed. Mind you I don't think that's a bad thing, I'm just surprised you think there is much of a difference.

For me it comes down it better installer, and for now a better community. I do think Fedora and Ubuntu are two sides of the same coin though and they are more alike than different. Though I suppose Ubuntu will appeal to the "Anything but Red Hat" crowd.
