I have both, and I found a skinnier tired (700C x 38) bike with studded tires to be better for commuting in Minnesota.  As fun as the fat bike could be as a commuter, if there were any drifts or plow mounds it would actually get bogged down more.  The narrower tires slice through and get down to a surface that they were able to get traction.  That was my experience anyhow.
