This is the reason I migtated to SuSE on my home systems - Fedora, from
what I've read, seems to be bleeding edge, and I have no enthusiasm to
come home from being a sysadmin to debug the o/s. If I'd known of it, I
might have gone to CentOS. I want stability, and I won't spend serious
money (I mean, if I wanted to do that, I could buy WinDoze.... <g>) on
the o/s. 

Btw, the bleeding edgeiness of Fedora is ESR's feeling, too, or at least
it was when we were talking about just this, about a year ago.
