A little dated (FC5) but probably still largely true.

I personally skipped down to the security section. That's where I find the biggest differences between Fedora and other distros.

"(8) SELinux is included in the default install. Fedora Core offers a whole bunch of extra security features like Exec-Shield, Compile Time Buffer Checks, ELF, Data Hardening, Restricted Kernel Memory access and more."

Few other distros have that many security features. (you hear me ubuntu?)
