I don't think you want to do this based on Fedora. The rate of change is
very high. Have you looked at Ubuntu LTS distros to see how those would
work for you intended market?

Another issue for Fedora is that it doesn't provide some software (particularly
media codecs) because of software patents. If you are talking about
implenting this plan in the US, getting additional Fedora compatible software
from RPM Fusion (that is blocked from Fedor abecause of software patents) is
going to be legally risky.
