Who is Fedora for?

I think that's missing the point. Ubuntu revs the distribution quickly,
providing new software versions every six months. But it does it only in the
context of new, named versions. If you choose not to do a dist upgrade, you
generally get only bug fixes. Contrast that with fedora pushing Thunderbird
3 (!) mid-stream.
Over time, it seems to my eyes Ubuntu has become more conservative with its
approach to update management. Fedora seems to be moving more in the
direction of "RHEL-Experimental", a product niche that probably doesn't fit
well with its users desires, and that is already pretty well served by
distributions like Debian unstable and Gentoo.
