Fedora vs Tao vs CentOs as servers



I know this has been discussed, but it was more toward, is FC stable
enought for use as a production server etc.

I'm looking more towards the limited life_span of FC compared to it's
RHEL counterpart. (which is where tao linux/CentOs etc... comes into the
picture)

I'm getting a bit flustered with the term "legacy" where a normal FC
life-span is only like 18 months before the "legacy" becomes obsolete (I
think, correct me)

Now, RHEL is supposed to last for 5 years. (which is a bit too plenty
many) Hence, the question of using Tao Linux/Cent Os instead of Fedora.

Now, I can always roll my own rpms based on source packages as it _is_
faster than the mirrors can come out with updated ones. But that's
another story. (If I had a better/beefier box, I'll just run Gentoo on
it, but since this is a P133 w/ 128MB Ram, Its more like.. Tough Luck.)

Thoughts..
