  • Fedora and Mint differ from Ubuntu in that they are both community-based projects, while Ubuntu is developed by a company (Canonical).
  • Ubuntu and Mint differ from Fedora in that they are Debian-based: their package manager is APT and their packages follow the DEB (Debian) package format. Fedora is RedHat-based, its package manager is DNF (formerly YUM) and its packages follow the RPM (RedHat Package Manager) package format.
  • They all differ in the default Desktop Environment: MATE or Cinnamon for Mint, Unity for Ubuntu, and Gnome for Fedora. But all of these environments (and others) can be installed on any of them.
  • The oldest is Fedora (released 2003), followed by Ubuntu (released 2004), then Mint (released 2006).
  • Their philosophies differ: Ubuntu’s philosophy is to provide a user-friendly OS. Mint’s philosophy is to provide a more “sight” or “elegant” OS. Fedora’s philosophy is to provide a rolling (or continuously developing) release.
