Hmmm, I tend to disagree a bit -- the difference between a more
carefully maintained Fedora and RHEL is that you have to wait 18 - 24
months to get new stuff with a new RHEL. That's fine and great for
Enterprise, it's to slow for most home users afaics.

So I think all the following use-cases would find users, and the mix
should make everyone happy:

- RHEL/CentOS -> seven years of support, only important updates, new
stuff if you want round about all 18 months
- Fedora, stable updates channel -> only important updates, get new
stuff once a year (if you skip a release) or all six months (if you want)
- Fedora, bold updates channel -> get most new stuff all the time, test
stuff out before it hits the stable updates channel while getting the
really new stuff all six months
- Fedora, development -> get new stuff constantly
