yes, use CentOS.

Long live Fedora

Actually I should add that 6 month seems a long time for me to wait for a new 
release, so I go on rawhide about 2 months before the release!  So long life 
support for Fedora really doesn't make sense, and it would be a detriment to 
the innovation of the community and it would take so much developer time to 
continue updates for a 2-year-old version.  And I'm sure you understand that 
that developer time is better spent somewhere else.
