*Ubuntu is based upon Debian Linux, they have their own scheme of
things. But, you can install some things from rpm files if you want to,
if you happened to have found something precompiled, for another distro,
that you wanted.
If you wanted to use precompiled packages, I'd say that Fedora and
Ubuntu are probably your best bet for having lots of things available

There are some extra repos for CentOS, and you can compile other things.
Do you really want all that's on offer, though? It may just seem better
because there's a large number of packages available, but if all the
core things that you want to use are there, that's the important thing.
