So do we. If we used ubuntu, we'd be posting on their lists.

And since you're using fedora anyway, just tell him to install
fedora, that way you'll be speaking the same language. Also,
I'm just speculating, because I haven't used ubuntu, but I doubt
there is any compelling reason to choose one over the other.

Maybe the best would be to recommend him the corresponding live cds 
to try for himself. It's Kubuntu for ubuntu, and for fedora I forget 
what it's called, but it was circulating on this mailing list not
long ago. They are all listed at distrowatch.com.
