Fedora as Enterprise-level desktop OS?

Fedora as Enterprise-level desktop OS?

Parent article: Which is the best distribution?

I am puzzled by the choice of Fedora as choice for "Enterprise-level desktop OS". I use it myself, and like it a lot, and will continue to use it in the future, but I am a geek, and am happy at the prospect of an upgrade of my desktop.

I would suggest Whitebox Linux for a poor organisation that cannot afford Red Hat Linux. An enterprise, however poor, would prefer product lifetimes to be long, and Fedora does not meet this requirement, unless Fedora legacy proves to be vital enough.

Interesting thought. I can't say I disagree with your view entirely, but... Two points:

1. Fedora's up2date is a supported way to upgrade to newer releases.
2. Fedora is likely to be around for a long time, in one form or another. Are you sure you can say the same about White Box Enterprise Linux?

Still, you are right that the short life span of Fedora releases could be of concern.
