In my opinion fedora is losing space from centos and ubuntu


The brazilian government, one of the biggest Fedora Case of the world is
changing from Fedora/ Red Hat to Ubuntu/Debian.

The problem was at an initial point, when Fedora was considered "for enthusiasts only". A lot of previous "RedHat Linux enthusiasts" just switch to CentOS (and similar RHEL-based systems), no more using Fedora, because "it is marked as a non-for-production system even by its creators".

As a result, the amount of Fedora-testers in real production environments significantly decreases. Fedora development seems to be focused on Desktop and some conseptual things now, rather than a real "production" life. Perhaps some marketing people assume that "production" implies the purchase of RHEL and commercial support, rather than trying to use some free-of-charge system, because such a system should be unstable for production environment. But people do not want to pay and they use CentOS instead...

This situation seems to be reflected in the Fedora project itself. Guess, how many Fedora infrastructure servers are run under the latest "stable" Fedora release? Maybe some previois release? How many key people work under Fedora Desktop "all the time"? (Maybe RedHat employees of them are compelled to use RHEL Desktop in basic working hours?)

And finally, when you will discover the actual situation, ask yourself -- why Brasilian should use Fedora (and Fedora-based RHEL), when even Fedora's fathers do not use it for anything real?

Sorry for a little bit sarcasm though...
