Of course it runs Fedora. What else did you think it would run, Windows? Fedora IS pretty much THE main stream for all Linux Distros, you know.
Ubuntu just has a rabid following.

The only distro i know in that list is yellow dog linux. There will be more Fedora users than any of it's offshoots.

http://www.debian.org/misc/children-distros

I'd also wager there are a lot more users of debian based distro's on desktops.
I don't like Ubuntu and i won't be using it any time soon but it is Debian based. If you count Ubuntu forks as well the list is even bigger.

So if fedora is THE main stream for Linux distro's where are the streams?

You are of course missing out a hell lot of derivative distributions including Red Hat Enterprise Linux, OLPC etc.
