Sorry, I don't buy that - there's an existence proof that we can do better than Fedora-rawhide and that is Debian-unstable.
I can just about buy the idea that Fedora-rawhide is the equivalent of Debian-experimental, but if that's the case, where's Fedora's equivalent of unstable or testing? There doesn't appear to be one. How Fedora approaches stability I really don't know - which lines up with my experiences of Fedora core 3 and 4 at work, where we had a huge number of stability and consistency problems on laptops (Vaios and Thinkpads). As a result of this, we've voted with our feet and moved all our laptops over to Ubuntu (Dapper), with an instant, noticeable improvement in stability.
