As CentOS mirrors RHEL AS, it will be supported for a longer period of time.  
As Fedora is more bleeding-edge, always under development, it tends to be 
upgraded more frequently.  Now that Fedora has been turned over completely to 
the community, that upgrade process could conceivably quicken.  And, the best 
of Fedora stuff tends to work its way back into RHEL/CentOS.

I've been using CentOS 3 for mail, web, file and print , and database serving 
in a production environment for over a year now with no problems.
