      Ubuntu vs Fedora opinions
      Some users think Ubuntu is a great alternative to Fedora, some don't.
      JohnFastman As of 2018, Ubuntu's installer will collect data about user devices. This has caused outrage amongst Linux users. Firstly, it's opt-out, rather than opt-in. Secondly, it shouldn't even be there. Thirdly, Canonical (Ubuntu's creators) have a very poor record on privacy, including harvesting local searches to drive Amazon sales and hostility to critics or their privacy practices. Try Linux Mint or Manjaro instead.

      Kdwk Solid, robust and powerful Ubuntu base with the latest Gnome desktop available. Some of the most painless proprietary software installation experiences on Linux, e.g. Nvidia drivers.

      Debian vs Fedora opinions
      Almost everyone thinks Debian is a great alternative to Fedora.
      There is no support for newer hardware, particularly Network Adapters that require “non-free” drivers. I never had this issue with Fedora, Linux Mint, or Ubuntu by the way.

      It is stable and easy to set up like Fedora. Upgrades are a little less frequent too.

      It's not a Unix-like system and isn't anything like as mature and well-established as Fedora. The only similarity really is that they're both Open Source operating systems.
