        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


Regards






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

Please note, CentOS IS A COMMERCIAL SUCCESS
Many bigger enterprises use CentOS, but they do not advertise it and it is very popular for small & medium enterprises
CentOS/Fedora does lacks the same consumer fame like Ubuntu
Two main reasons according to me :
(1) Commercial backing => limited funding => less advertisement
(2) Perception amongst users and the media => leading to less knowledge how to use the product
