Urmm, isn't Fedora Core == RHL essentially?

So, you wouldn't use Fedora (too bleeding edge) but you would use
Gentoo? Or Debian (which Debian? Ok ok, Debian Stable right now just
happens to be mildly recent).
IMHO, I can think of cases where you'd be insane to use CentOS over
Fedora just as much as the other way around.
Further, if you need CentOS cause you want a long-term supportable
server, you're likely quite insane to choose it over RHEL. And if
RHEL is an option, hey, you could choose Solaris - cheaper (no, it's
free if you want) and better for certain things (I'm biased though ;)
Horses for courses.
