I am hesitant to use the word reccommend concerning a specific operating system. Educate
is a better word when the focus is about choice.
Everyone is different and likewise their solutions to technology problems will be
different. it should be our first goal, when discussing Linux, to educate that there are
alternatives - Fedora being one of them.

There is a Fedora LTS. It's called RHEL or CentOS.
So, we are working here to recommend Red Hat and CENTOS ??
That's the question, Ubuntu has a LTS, Fedora don't! That's the main

Today, we have many users! With this idea to recommend Centos and Red
Hat, we will have a lot of users in the future ?
Thinking in this way, we will hear frequently "Fedora is a beta tester
version to add and improve technologies for Red Hat EL ".
For me and for marketing, it isn't a great decision!
Now i'm presenting lectures in all Brazilian states and i can't talk
about this.. USE CENTOS OR RHEL. I have to recommend Fedora.
I'm here to represent and spread fedora, not Centos or Red hat EL.

Or maybe Fedora is not a suitable system for production use. Think about
it: updating all your servers (and in the case of Wikipedia there must be
hundreds) each year ?
Do you know what system the Fedora Infrastructure is using ? At least for
Fedora People, that's CentOS, not Fedora (and the contrary would be really
