Well, problem I have with declaring Fedora geek-only is that 
I would like to have something to install for my 
parents/wife/geek-impaired friends. And I really don't want to 
install them Ubuntu -- not only because I have my doubts about 
its quality, but also because I would prefer them to feed with 
their input relevant for our stuff, and frankly because I don't 
want to keep in my poor mind both /etc/network/interfaces and 
/etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/*-cfg ;-).

Currently my options are Fedora (last released just with updates) 
and CentOS. I tend to think more and more about CentOS for such 
cases, but I would really like give them something more recent 
and something which would directly feed into Fedora.

Oh well,
