I agree with you on this, i tried FC5, CentOS 4.4 and Ubuntu on my

Agreed, Ubuntu on the laptop worked so much nicer for me than Fedora.

with Ubuntu i needed no NetworkManager even working with encripted
networks, and not have to use iwconfig :) as needed with FC5 or CentOS
if you do not want to install NetworkManager

When I used Ubuntu the wireless worked out of the box for me.
Additionally the 'special' keys worked correctly too on the laptop.

on my desktop i saw that Ubuntu, FC5 and CentOS are the same :).
on my web, squid, postfix, dns, etc. I use CentOS, maybe Debian could
be another good option for a server.

On the desktop, Ubuntu "felt" nicer, but I found it a bit of a
nuisance that *many many* things had to be added for development. In
summary, Fedora makes for a much better development system, whereas
Ubuntu is much better for a novice desktop user. IMO.
