Switching to another distro?

So, I've been thinking recently about switching to another distro so I can get involved with the development community again. The question is which should I try? I've been leaning towards Fedora since I've heard good things about the community over there, and Redhat was my first distro that I seriously used. The other option with a nice community that sticks out is Ubuntu. I don't know many people that use Ubuntu though, so I don't have much feedback on the community.

I'm downloading the Fedora CDs right now to install on an extra computer I have so I can play around with Yum and see how I like it. I may do the same with Ubuntu, but probably not if I like how Fedora works. Does anyone have any suggestions on what to try? Did I miss one that maybe I should look into?
