As far as I can judge from my reading of newsgroups and mailing lists,
CentOS is neither more nor less reliable than Fedora.

Very few software errors arise because some developer
is trying something daring.
99% of problems occur simply because someone makes a silly blunder,
and that is just as likely to happen anywhere.

I find this "Fedora is bleeding edge" excuse rather absurd.
