Most distributions come with their own custom precompiled kernel and they are the same basic kernel but just different things compiled into them. There is very little difference in between the different distributions kernels, and they are basically the same to use.

I think you mean distro, because the only kernel I here people talking about is the kernel.org kernel. The 2 main packaging formats are rpm(red hat package manager) and deb(debian), and fedora is basically the non-enterprise version of red hat
