  3. both are different distributions of linux. i think fedora is based on red hat, but im not entirely sure

    ubuntu is based on a distribution known as debian

    essentially, ubuntu is debian, just with a few changes

    i heard fedora was pretty good, too :D

  4. Fedora is based on Redhat. Your Ubuntu is based on Debian.

    Debian is really the Bee’s Knee’s of Linux,you could say that it is Linux in it’s purest form. The team leaders have, since I’ve known Debian when it first came out (one of the first distros), concentrated on a clean and pure Linux, so you will not get many pretty desktops or bundled software, instead time is spent on keeping up with drivers and trends, for example clustering is the buzz word these days, Debian was the first of the Linux distros to have a solid clustering helper onboard.

    You will get an absolutely solid distro on which to put the pretty things like desktops. Some like to keep Debian as clean as possible, particularly in the workplace, simply because it is so reliable.

    Ubuntu is Debian underneath, you get added helpers, I think you get a better library update and software load system, plus more of your applications are loaded without the need to compile. But still, if you ever fancy a look under the hood, the Debian knowledge base is a good place to look.
