I don't really agree with this.
If you are using CentOS on servers 
it is much easier to use Fedora on laptops,
since Fedora is so similar in operation to CentOS.
In fact CentOS is more or less identical
to an ancient version of Fedora.

Incidentally, I don't really understand 
what is meant by the term "desktop" nowadays.
I always think of it as a contrast to laptop.
But isn't everyone today using laptops for everyday use?
