Is not a proper distribution for home use, this may be correct, but we
could explore much more in it, that is for sure. Even I am very new
here (in Fedora I mean), but have liked Fedora.

Don't mind but it is always not good to suddenly switch to some other
OS if problems come. It needs troubleshooting then. And that's why
listings are there. I am trying to resolve the issue, but may be it is
not getting solved! If suppose after switching to Ubuntu, again some
problem comes, would it mean to again switch to CentOS?
