    I too went from Fedora to Ubuntu. It is a good move if you want 
things to work. In Fedora your worried about the Red Hat server versions 
that are making money for the company. Here your getting a Linux that is 
actually EASY to install, and it works well.

    And I never have found a use for yum on Ubuntu :-)
