a long lifespan. Fedora needs upgrading about once a year to the next
release, or you'll not have any updates for it, leaving you with unfixed
bugs, and security problems. Alternatively, CentOS has a much longer
support cycle (several years), where you can continue to update packages
without having to upgrade the entire distribution.
Upgrading can be quite a hassle on servers with data that needs keeping,
or converting to newer formats, or if you have equipment in a rack that
will need disassembling to change/add a drive because of boot device
