I agree very much with your sentiment.  On our servers we run
Scientific Linux.  The desktops run Fedora.

The servers are great, but admittedly we use a much smaller set of
software.  With the desktops, its either do updates frequently or do
them 500 at a time.  I'd be a lot happier if the kernel was updated
less frequently (like with the server.)

Right now, I think the happy medium might be with the latest SL, and a
few applications like Firefox and Thunderbird compiled by hand in
/usr/local/...
