Fedora is (or try to be) :

http://fedora.redhat.com/about/objectives.html
        Create a complete general-purpose operating system with
        capabilities equivalent to competing operating systems, built
        for and by a community â those who not only consume, but also
        produce for the good of other community members.
        
              * Build the operating system exclusively from open source
                software.
        
Easy to recompile.
        
              * Do as much of the development work as possible directly
                in the upstream packages. This includes updates; our
                default policy will be to upgrade to new versions for
                security as well as for bugfix and new feature update
                releases of packages.

Sync with upstream.

              * Provide a robust development platform for building
                software, particularly open source software.
        
Open source (again)
        
              * Be on the leading edge of open source technology, by
                adopting and helping develop new features and version
                upgrades.
        
Promote new technologies.
        



Fedora is not (or try to avoid) :

        Non-Objectives of Fedora Core:
        
             1. Slow rate of change.
                
             2. ....
                
             3. Being a dumping ground for unmaintained or poorly
                designed software.
