      I always thought that

o bleeding edge, where new stuff comes
o new programs/kernels/drivers
o Expect things might not be work or last
o Versions change as fast as in ubuntu, if not faster
o Trendsetter for RHES and CentOS

o Takes stuff that can be used in servers that survived baptism of
fire in Fedora
o Long term FTW!
o Slow changes, more security and patches

o Very very close to RHES, but by design 6 months behind it
o Open support, open community like Fedora
o More server related like RHES
