I'm going to still vote forArch Linux, overall it's been the best OS that I've tried, love the rolling release concept, love the fact that things just work, and that I can choose to install the software that I want (without having to uninstall a bunch of extras first)

Yes, it is different, but not so much you can't switch easily from one to the other.
Additionally, Fedora's versions are more frequent than Ubuntu's, and software upgrades can often be obtained from "testing" repositories.
Though, at the moment, only Digikam 1.9 can run with Fedora 15 ... because of the KDE version, I think; but Fedora 16 is announced for pretty soon, the beginning of November, I think.

As for myself, I switched from Ubuntu to Fedora more than a year ago, and I have not regretted it once. I don't know about the english forum; but the french one is very dynamic and helpful.

I'm not Fedora user, but I'm sure fedora has different package manager from Ubuntu, so installing applications and handling repositories is going the main difference. The rest of the things should be pretty much the same.
