That is mostly an illusion created somewhat by the ubuntu user community.  You
said things "look" easier.  Like what?  Could you give a good example?  **
 
For this example: I mean that some ubuntu multimedia software ask you installing codecs when needed!! And they install the appropriate one. This unfortunatly does not exist in Fedora

The
codecs are installed the same way and used the same way in both ubuntu and
CentOS/Fedora.
