IIRC, CentOS 5, the latest version, as well as Scientific Linux, too, is based off FC6. That's not all that far removed from 4, is it? Although, as I recall, FC6 worked so well, for me anyway, compared to the previous releases (I had been upgrading every version since FC3, the first "good" release IMO) that I used both the 32-bit and 64-bit versions on two different machines for almost 2 years before upgrading.
