Ubuntu 7.10 vs Fedora Core 8 - Gutsy vs Werewolf

I was pretty happy with Ubuntu 7.10, but when Fedora 8 came out I decided to give it a try. Last time I tried it it was Core 2 or something like that, and it was NOT good.

At first Fedora 8 looks quite good, has a good Live CD install, reminiscent of Ubuntu.  The positive side is that it is based on the latest Kernel. It manages my Thinkpad T42 very well (suspend, hibernate work). But after a few days, one notice Fedora is not as stable as Ubuntu, for example:

One can wonder why Fedora 8 does not install OpenOffice by default.
Ubuntu is IMHO still the king of distros.
