Hi all,

Which one do you think is better and for what reasons. Ubuntu or Fedora
9. Personally I like Fedora 9.

Better for what? It is a matter of using the correct tool for the job.

The job is sir to have the best Linux environment. So which is better, Fedora OR Ubuntu?

From a 'use' perspective you end up with pretty much the same applications with just some slight version differences that leapfrog each other based on the respective release dates.

The differences are in installation and administration procedures. Ubuntu has some funding that goes to improve the user experience and their policy permits coordination with repositories holding the additional packages you are likely to want, so overall it is likely to be easier for an unbiased user to install and maintain a system.

On the other hand, RHEL and its clones are the most popular server distributions and fedora shares much of same the administration procedures. So if you already maintain RH-style servers or are using Linux to learn those techniques but want a desktop distro instead, fedora might be a better fit.
