And Ubuntu wants to take over the desktop / server market. Fedora doesn't.

And Ubuntu is trying to make profit. Fedora isn't.

And we could go on playing "find the differencies" for a long time ;)

Fedora is a lab, trying to push forward the latest and greatest free and
open source technologies (not RHEL, but all upstream and downstream). How
can you move fast if you have to maintain releases for a long time ?
