It's Fedora. It's *always* broken.

It's not that bad. The only things you really need to match up are glibc and the kernel. Beyond that, most things are reasonably source compatible with a slightly older glibc. I don't think you would need to go that far, though. What do you need in Fedora that you can't get in the almost equally substandard desktop experience from CentOS or any other enterprise distribution? (I use CentOS as my primary desktop.)
