We've at work a Red Hat Valhalla server, and it's stable, not so fast but 
stable. I've only tried Fedora at home, but i'm using it on a machine that's 
really slower than the server, but the distro works really fine. I think that 
a Red-Hat user can easely switch to fedora withouth problems. It's secure and 
stable as a red hat distro, you must update it frequently of course, but it 
works very well and the community around Fedora is one of the most kind and 
nice in linux world.

Differences are few. But i haven't tried an upgrade to fedora from a red hat

Other distros are not the subject of this mailing list, i suppose. But i'm 
using also Slackware 9.1, it's really good but it has a poor hardware
