Well, the GUI is more-or-less the same between Ubuntu and Fedora, but
that's where the similarities end.  The low-level stuff (package
management tools, installers, that sort of thing) is identical between
RHEL/CentOS and Fedora.  There's no pain in transitioning between them
IF you ignore the GUI bits.

(Even some of the GUI bits are common though, actually.  We use
virt-manager on both Fedora and CentOS.  The CentOS version is almost as
current as the Fedora version.)

Almost.  The installers are completely different.  Other than that,
ignoring the GUI bits, yeah, you're right.
