Hi! For normal user, I would say that the main differences between distros is in the installation process and the package manager. For the rest, you will most likely get the same programs running pretty much in the same way. Of course, there are more differences, but not necessarily things you need to care about, like initscripts (what really happen during boot), and what they use for playing sound.
