Well, it's working pretty well for me on my NAS and dhcp/tftp/nameserver/general
boxes at home.

Ymmv but I've been using Fedora on servers since FC1 - I might chose another
distribution for things that I want to deploy long-term or for special cases
like my router but personally (and given the way I manage the boxes at home) I
don't have any major problems.

Yes, there is change and yes, I will sometimes need to learn new things but in
general the skills I gain figuring out a change in Fedora soon become useful on
a much broader range of distros (that's something that's been true all the way
back to Red Hat Linux to be honest).
