It is personal preference. I have a Macbook Pro running Fedora 12 just 
fine. It does go to sleep and wake up and reconnect with ZERO issues.

I also have a Macbook Pro running CentOS just fine as well. However Fedora 
is a lot farther ahead driver wise and application wise. It also took 
longer to configure CentOS to a good state.
