When to use Fedora Core?

Pardon me while I give my opinion.
Fedore Core, while it contains server applications, it *NOT* a server OS... unless you are the type of person who wants to upgrade/reinstall at least once a year. I definitely don't.
I *DO* run FC on desktop machines because on desktop machines... I want more bleeding edge stuff. Even if there is an upgrade path between versions I prefer to do a clean install... leaving my /home intact. That really isn't that painful... at least not for me.
On servers, I run either RHEL or CentOS.
While I use Debian in a few places, I really don't care for it as a desktop OS... mainly because of the long time between major releases... although they are trying to change that.
