"The difference between Ubuntu and Fedora lies primarily in their
approaches to the end product they produce. Ubuntu's approach is to
produce an easy-to-use desktop alternative to Windows. While not a
Windows clone it is designed to be used by anyone keen to leave Windows
behind. And in this it is remarkably successful.

Fedora, on the other hand, strives to make a desktop operating system
that offers the best that the world of free and open source software has
at the time. It routinely includes software that many other
distributions consider too experimental to use and yet, somehow, manages
to team that with stability."
