I don't think so, no. There are differences. To give just one example, I guess the config files are not always at the same places in the system in all distros...

You have also "amount of apps" for Fedora. You'll find often for instance, if you download apps from their web sites, .deb AND .rpm packages for apps. Even sometimes I had apps with just .rpm packages. Other app sites propose packages for other distros too.

Yes when you have seen and understood their different politics, goals, views, targets etc
Forkjulle wrote:it seems that Mint is a more intuitive choice...
Well, for you. But maybe yes but because their goals... see above. Fedora is not for newbies, though of course some motivated newbies can use/try it, and even Fedora's priorities tend to lean towards enterprise features, rather than desktop usability, as DistroWatch says. Security, SELinux etc this distro has not the same goals and other than Mint. Fedora is used by developers, among other. This is no accident if Linus uses Fedora...
For a description of Fedora you could see here: Top Ten Distributions - An overview of today's top distributions
Forkjulle wrote:Even these Mint forums are more polished than Fedora's
As I said, this and other things are not really their main goals. It is NOT Mint, neither Ubuntu. It is a quite different beast and can't really compare to Mint.

Yes, Yum is quite slow. But, as said MALsPA, it works very well.

Yes. Although I don't (didn't) use it, it is quite nice.

OK and what? How many (old and new) bugs still waiting to be fixed in a distro like Ubuntu? And many will be never...

I'd like to cut this distro some slack, but it is really bad. Gnome 3 makes Unity look and feel heavenly by comparison.
Yes, GNOME 3 sucks.
