What I was suggesting was that "updates frequently" (whatever term you 
would like) isn't what's needed in most cases for *servers*.   

For a *server*, I don't want to apply updates every few days-- sometimes 
needing a reboot. 

I'm not bashing Fedora (nor trying to pick a fight with folks who
have "redhat.com" on the right side of their email address)-- but I do 
believe it is correct to say that Fedora is a very fast-paced environment 
with relatively short-lived releases.

If you only wish to reload the OS on your servers every couple years, then
(IMHO) Fedora is a poor choice-- RHEL/CentOS would be a much better 
choice because of the "long-term-supported distro[s]".
