My friend to me that Linus Torvalds uses fedora to compile the kernel. Why does he prefer fedora over any other distribution (ex. Ubuntu)?

Each of us have our reasons for which OS we use. Many of us move between Linux distributions. Also many use different distributions for different systems at the same time, and I personally use multiple Gnu/Linuxes and several Unixes at any one time.
I cannot comment on what distribution Linus uses, but I suspect that it's not just one distro for every system he uses/administers. While the question of which one he uses (at least primarily) might be answerable here, I haven't heard of any indication as to why he might prefer one over another. We're all starting with the same GNU tools and the same kernel.
