in this context i would not recommend Fdora for a server because it
has a limited release-lifetime and you have two options twice a year

* re-install
* dist-upgrade

re-install is not much funny and a dist-upgrade with rely on a
screen reader maybe also not because sometimes a lot of changes
which i personally would not want to take care of in this siutation

in this conext i would recommdn CentOS6 which has security updates
for arund 10 years, the backside is that you can't have major
upgrades of software for a specific release and a dist-upgrade
is mre or less impossible because the changes are too much
