Fedora vs Kubuntu: What are the differences?

Developers describe Fedora as "Operating system based on the Linux kernel, developed by the community-supported Fedora Project". Fedora is a Linux-based operating system that provides users with access to the latest free and open source software, in a stable, secure and easy to manage form. Fedora is the largest of many free software creations of the Fedora Project. Because of its predominance, the word "Fedora" is often used interchangeably to mean both the Fedora Project and the Fedora operating system. On the other hand, Kubuntu is detailed as "An open-source operating system". It is a free, complete, and open-source alternative to Microsoft Windows and Mac OS X which contains everything you need to work, play, or share. It unites Ubuntu with KDE and the fabulous Plasma desktop, bringing you a full set of applications. The installation includes productivity, office, email, graphics, photography, and music applications ready to use at startup.

Fedora and Kubuntu belong to "Operating Systems" category of the tech stack.
