Parent article: Who is Fedora for?
Reading the wiki page, I think fedora is doing the right thing in re-evaluating its purpose - and discussing it openly.
I used Fedora years ago but dropped it between v2 and v3 (I think, it was a long time ago). I was (and am) aware it's "bleeding edge" to a great degree, both a curse and a blessing, but the various breakages at the time put me off. I wanted a little more stability at the time.
Fedora has come on in leaps and bounds since then however (not least, the huge yum improvements). I may not use it just now, but developers at my workplace chose Fedora (over Ubuntu) because it offers them a better development experience (32/64 bit development - multi-arch).
Fedora is a very important distribution, contributed to by many many dedicated people. For that I am grateful. Even if I don't use it just now, I might in the future.
