I am choosing Fedora because of its relation to Red Hat (I want my personal laptop to help prepare me for any future encounters with it). Gnome 3 is the default desktop environment for both, if I understand correctly, so I am thinking I need to use it given my intent. However, I think I like KDE better. Will choosing one over the other put me at an advantage/disadvantage if it ever comes to me needing to do/understand administrative tasks on Red Hat? I know I can switch back and forth, but I'd rather not get attached if it will become an issue.
I'm new, so I don't know what I don't know. I just want to make sure my own personal preference choice does not hinder me in the future. This is NOT a preference question, but a technical one, at least that's how I intend it.
Thanks in advance for your cordiality and assistance.
