Fedora is all newest/latest/greatest applications, and not as rigorously tested. Support, such as it is, for it will be dropped much earlier than for RHEL. There is no guarantee that Fedora can be 'upgraded' from version to version without a complete re-install. It is a kind of beta-like distro. The biggest upside is the newness of the included packages. Probably well suited for newbies. Command-line tools and such programs don't change much, if at all, so the two distros are pretty much identical in that respect.

If you really want to use RHEL, try CENTOS, a free version of RHEL.

Depends on what you want out of a distro.

If you just want to learn linux for a job or want to run a web site, or any other type server stuff then you'll want to learn CentOS.

If you want to do any audio/video editing or need the latest drivers for new hardware you would probably be better of with Fedora.
