In reply to: Why Fedora?
Parent article: A kernel.org update
There's no reason not to run Fedora provided you are happy to upgrade to the next release at least once a year, and deal with any backwards compatibility problems. (There aren't many, but Fedora does not provide an explicit 'nothing breaks' guarantee - packages do get removed or replaced from one Fedora release to the next.)
That means that upgrading the machines should not be a 'long process' as they report; it is essential to have an automated way to push out the latest distribution and to be able to swap out machines for spares. Otherwise, yes, you are making a rod for your own back.
