Try to think about this in terms of free software, not distro v distro.
For me, I use and contribute to Fedora because I care about freedom,
want to help drive freedom forward and believe Fedora is the best
place for me to achieve these goals at the moment. I couldn't careless
if people use Cent OS, RHEL, Fedora, Debian, Gentoo etc etc (some
questions Re: Ubuntu's stance on freedom), they're all going to be
using free software, much of which was developed on Fedora by Fedora
This has been my focus of marketing Fedora, the cool innovative work
that our developers do, to a) get them credit, and b) to encourage
others to come and join in as contributors.

Which is fine, if freedom is what you really care about.

And Fedora contributions are used in schools, governments etc, just in
other distributions, and that's something you should be proud of IMHO.
