Default F14 server

Someone said not to use F14 for servers. What is the reasoning of this if it is true ?
Surely with SELinux its going to be more secure than other distros ?
Many thanks in advance,


Aaron

You need to remember that Fedora release has a short life cycle, different of rhel, centos, sl, that has a long life cycle.*

Applications are *far* lest tested before being allowed into Fedora. In
fact, part of the reason for Fedora's creation was to be a "bleeding
edge" test bed for Red Hat's Enterprise Linux. Only things that prove
reliable, stable and secure make it into RHEL.

So the reason not to use Fedora for a server is that it is not as
reliable or stable. Not to say it's bad, mind you. It's used as a
workstation OS for many, many people. However, a random crash, hang or
other problem is usually a mere nuisance. On a server, the same can't be
said.

As has been said, if you're going to do a production server that will
live more than a year, you'll probably want to use CentOS, not Fedora.
Keeping Fedora up to date and "production quality" is just too much work.

If it's a server you're running for yourself, then go for it.
