Hi Rinus

You will never get an answer to your main question "will you be better 
switching to fedora". I personally tried ubuntu a few years ago and 
never was satisfied the way they do things. But I must confess that I 
came from Mandrake/Mandriva and this originally was a spin off from 
redhat. To me fedora was easier than all the ubuntu way.

But in general: If you only use the packageKit programs to install and 
maintain software there will be almost no difference. Some 
configuration files are named different and you have to search them in 
different places (network configuration files for example) but this is 
easy to learn.

The main difference is that fedora use Gnome instead of unity by 
default. If you use KDE fedora is better than ubuntu (imho). And the 
kde fedora mailing list is very good.
