Current RHEL life cycle is in fact 7 years.
Interesting, I remember hearing just the opposite - that they're about 
to reduce the life cycle from 7 to 5 years, since allegedly no one uses 
the same EL major release for more than 5 years. I mean, can you imagine 
anyone who used RHEL 2.1 up until less than a year ago?

Anyway, it's nice to see so many people have dumped Fedora for pretty 
much the same reason as I have, more than a year ago in favour of 
CentOS. And this was after almost two years of discontent with Fedora.
