Is CentOS your first introduction to Linux? You may need to cut your teeth
upstream on Fedora (a cutting edge product) as it changes frequently and
has tons of updates. With an Enterprise distro the aim is stability to run
mission critical servers.

With the latest and greatest distro (Fedora), the aim is to roll out tons
of updates and have you test them out.

Thanks,
Josh.
