That's good enough a reason right there. Unless you're unhappy with  
it, you're going to have a lot less problems just sticking to what you  
know. There are enough obstacles to overcome w/o having to learn how a  
different distribution does things.

Linux is Linux. Some distros have more engineering muscle behind them,  
some are more bleeding-edge, some are more grandmother-friendly, etc.,  
but they're all capable of doing more or less the same things, because  
underneath, its all the same source code.

Fedora, but that's mostly irrelevant. :)
