I am using Ubuntu from near about 3-4 years. I want to give a chance to Fedora this time. I want to give try to GNOME. Basically my question is:

Does Ubuntu /home partition is compatible with Fedora 24?

I want dual boot system with Fedora and Ubuntu installed with same home partition.

I think it should work. You do not have to format /home partition and choose to mount it as /home when running Fedora's installer. I don't know what actually happen to your configuration files. You can give it a try quite safely.
