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.

I am a fedora user myself and I gave the reasons for ubuntu.

fedora does not have a rigid time based schedule. its not a single cd distro either. fedora doesnt have a big repository unlike ubuntu universe. debian is well known for community participation and ubuntu feeds on it. fedora has NO outside packagers at all. fedora users get all the upstream software as updates. not just security and bug fixes. this is not suitable for everyone. While this has been pretty much what I want I still consider ubuntu for its advantages.
