I did - and the Centosplus kernels have not given me any unpleasant surprises.

Interesting. CentOS 5 was supposed ti be  based on Fedora Core 6 work so
now I wonder just what the difference(s) are?

The difference is that RHEL (the sources that Centos recompiles) cares enough about their user base to maintain a stable kernel interface for the life of the distribution version - which is much longer than fedora's. The down side is that applications don't get version upgrades as the distro version ages, just security and bugfix updates.

As for Fedora itself. Since you no longer use it why to you care anymore?

I have more than one machine, so I track fedora on a box that I can afford to have fail to boot on occasion to know what to expect from the next RHEL/Centos.
