As someone who uses both

As someone who uses both Ubuntu and Fedora...I must say that I highly doubt you will find Fedora to be easier than Ubuntu. Granted you may have the GUI available but Ubuntu does as well. I also find that Fedora is a pain to get to install. Fedora is very picky when it comes to hardware as well. Good luck either way.
