There isn't a lot of difference from the learning standpoint,
but there are two main differences from an administration
standpoint: fedora and openSUSE and many others use
"rpm" packages and ubuntu and debian use "deb" packages
to install software.

There are various other administrative differences
such as networking being described differently on
fedora versus ubuntu, etc.
