Oh, okie, sorry for the misunderstanding!

I thought about this seriously. I tried to imagine myself using CentOS. 
I don't think it would work for me. I know it seems like I'm asking for 
a tall order, both stability and the latest technology. But I'm not 
asking for complete stability. I'm asking for just-enough stability.

Fedora release today:

stability          [=====_______________] orange
latest technology  [====================] green

CentOS (my perception):

stability          [=================___] green-yellow
latest technology  [=======_____________] yellow

What I want:

stability          [==========__________] yellow
latest technology  [================____] green-yellow

Should I be less stubborn about using Fedora? Am I making a mess of this 
thread? :(
