The machine was running Ubuntu, so I thought I might as well leave it.

I haven't found much difference between the two distributions to date.
In fact there is far more difference between Gnome and KDE.
(I have KDE running under Ubuntu now, so I feel safe.)
Actually, I don't find the Fedora config applications
(eg system-config-*) particularly appealing.
I'll be interested to see how setting up CUPS compares.
Also I've had a lot of problems with Anaconda under Fedora.
So I'm quite open to a change of religion.
(But I'm still running Fedora on 5 of 6 machines.)
