well i never used fedora because im a new time linux user but i find ubuntu 11.04 quite nice since my laptop refused to run the windows it came with lol

just a thought, why not download it to a thumb drive and boot from it and see if you like if not shut down and remove then boot from fedora again. Back to normal if you didnt like it!

P.S.
If i remember right it wasnt even a gig so you shouldnt have much trouble fitting it on a thumb drive.
AND 11.10 is now out (Oneric Olric or something of that sort) just for you information.

Good Luck!!!

Yeah i have 11.04 installed right now on a fresh system, switched it to classic mode cause i dont like the look/feel of unity, but im just not sold on whether i want to make the switch.

Realistically 11.04 w/o unity is identical to fedora 14, visually speaking.

I guess the minute changes to the OS itself are whats holding me back. (yum vs. apt-get, sudo, a few important files being located in different areas)

I dont even know if im making sense at this point.

GPU drivers and flash are a piece of cake to install in almost any distro.

The vast majority of distros also support that, even the more professional and less user friendly ones.
