In my personal experience, the 'buntus are not as mature as Fedora (don't have the professional backing of Red Hat); servers are painfully slow, so net installation and updating are gruellingly lengthy and tedious; and they lack the sophistication of rpm and yum, having to make due with the deficient and awkward apt system (on two attempts at installing a 'buntu, the initial update right after the CD install failed).

Aside from that, in my estimation, once you have a distro configured and installed to your preferences, it's really all just Linux (nearly all distros offer the same packages we already know and use from Fedora). Fedora is said to be more cutting edge, meaning that some pre-release packages and early versions of programs might make it into Fedora before another distro picks it up, but this varies from one distro to another.

Personally, I am used to where Fedora keeps the configuration files and any non-Fedora/RedHat-based distro is difficult for me, when it comes to trying to solve configuration problems. I have spent years learning this way of doing things and don't see the point of reinvesting all those years in another system, in order to ultimately get essentially what I've already got.
