One should know he's in er... testbed when one installs Fedora. Consider bringing up IPv6 by default, which is even worse a security setup/maintenance nightmare than I would have though night before.
There are more OpenBSD-like Linux distros like Owl and ALT, where basesystem is additionally audited and tools like control(8) are in place to facilitate retaining admin-specified permissions on potentionally privileged binaries -- like "public/wheel/wheelonly/restricted" for su(8). Those that wouldn't crash-dive into 2.6 kernels and apache 2.0 when that would really be too much grief for reasonable sysadmins.
Disclaimer: I participate in this spring's ALTLinux release, as usual, but have long disliked RHL and Fedora for practical reasons (with much respect to Red Hat, of course).
