The Fedora 9 Live CD did not seem nearly as advanced as Ubuntu's. Hardy's Live CD had a specific option to install, this bypassed loading the full blown desktop and iI was able to install on a system with only 256 MB of RAM because of this ability. Ubuntu also had the ability to choose the language you want first thing when booting from the Live CD.
Fedora 9 was better hands down as far as appearance and organization of the menus, but this has nothing to do with the system itself. I expected Fedora to have better artwork right off the bat.
I found that both Fedora and Ubuntu could not read files on a floppy disk. Ubuntu had a better selection of applications on the Live CD compared to Fedora. I suspect Anaconda took up a lot of disk space on Fedora.
Fedora was running a newer 2.6.25 kernel and had a newer version of Network Manager. Network manager produced errors on shutdown, Ubuntu had this problem but it was resolved.
All things considered the Ubuntu Developer's are doing something right!
