My, my ! :)

As you made your own reasonning, I suggest that people don't come back 
on the distro you've already eliminated so that this won't be a Troll ( 
For my own I love Ubuntu but you had your reason to not choose it) .

As a rpm based distro I can suggest you Mandriva http://www.mandriva.com/
