And I don't, other than as a curiosity.

I do, wherever Linux can be used at all - but Centos inherits most of 
the problems from fedora and thus can't be used in many situations either.

I guess my expectations were set badly back in the early RH days when 
the experimental branch of the kernel wasn't used and versions were 
supported and fixed with ongoing point releases.  Fedora has turned out 
to be one of those things like someone giving you a puppy that looks 
cute but you can't afford the upkeep and then you find out it doesn't 
play well with others.
