Of course, some of us use Fedora as a main user machine to benefit from
all the whizzy new features and support for the latest gadgets, but then
use CentOS on the server that supports the user machines. The server
doesn't need to be too fancy, it should be running on stable, mature
hardware and bleeding-edge versions of things like Apache, dhcpd, NFS,
Samba or LDAP aren't required.
