Just to add my 2 Eurocents:

We are running CentOS here on the server and Fedora Core on the Desktops for 
software development. It's actually not a bad combination. Fedora Core is 
generally a great distribution. It is kind of a moving target with all the 
updates that are flowing in constantly. Sometimes you have to play around 
with the settings on your desktop, because application XY was upgraded to a 
newer version that behaves slightly different. However the underlying system 
itself is generally rock stable.

I generally would not recommend Fedora on a server. But for a developer 
workstation always having the bleeding edge stuff can even be an advantage. 
Expecially when it comes to multimedia.

P.s. I also had Fedora on some of our servers. Also works nice, but keeping 
them up to date can be really tiresome. CentOS makes life so much easier in 
this case. :-)
