I wouldn't probably say that the users are primarily testers, but
getting to use new stuff sooner than the users of some other distros
is certainly one aspect of Fedora. Another important factor is the
reluctancy to include a lot of backwards-compatibility stuff, like
older versions of certain libraries, for example.

If the fast-paced and "living" nature of Fedora doesn't suit, it's
certainly wise to consider using a more conservative distribution.
