That depends on the applications themselves. Some of the desktop applications in particular do get version upgrades too.

OK, I suppose it's possible.

It is not merely possible. It happens all the time.

But the mid-life 4.x distro is still
providing firefox 1.5.x, subversion 1.1.x, evolution 2.0.x. Are those things you'd want on your desktop much longer?

That depends on what you want out of the desktop. If you want the latest and greatest at all times, Fedora will serve that need. If you prefer targeted fixes, commercial support etc, RHEL will meet that need better.

I want something tested but not ancient. Neither disto provides that except for the first few months after an RHEL cut. But I'm usually happy with old kernel and server apps (except subversion and dovecot...). It's generally just the desktop stuff that changes fast enough to care about.
