Fedora is based on RedHat and Ubuntu is based on Debian.

There's some great enhancements in both new versions of Fedora and Ubuntu ... including security. Always worth a read of their news releases on their respective websites.

If you're interested in Fedora - you could also take a look at Centos.

If you're interested in Ubuntu - you could also take a look at Debian.

Personally, I prefer Debian over Ubuntu.

Just to add a little more:

It is normally not recommended that Fedora be used for servers but instead use CentOS.

I am not sure about Ubuntu. I know some use it on servers but I thought it was more for desktop users.
