Well... I'm not trying to goad you but....

IMO Fedora has lost a *lot* of mind share since they (RH) dropped the
Red Hat name and switched to FC.

I was surprised at the small percentage Red Hats enterprise line of
products got but not at all at the size of the FC userbase (according
to that report)

I think FC has swung too far into the realms of technology playground
and too far from the realm of stable code for users to actually use.

My distros of choice are....

 * Contractually OpenSUSE on the laptop, SLES on the server

 * Personally I prefer Debian for the good work they do and the sheer
range of packages available (3rd party RPMS/debs pave the road to
HELL! (dependancy hell that is... ))

 * I can see the value in Ubuntu, especially the work they have done
in increasing the number of people coming into the community so I
can't knock them for that. I still have some reservations about the
project and time will tell. It is a good distro.
