Default lastest kernel support fedora 9 DVD

If you want stability run Centos, if you want latest versions (bleeding
edge?) run Fedora. Fedora will require frequent re-installation or
upgrade to a newer version.

I run Centos on my servers and Fedora on my work stations.

In my experience both are well supported (but what do you mean by
support - paid for support, support on these sort of mailing lists, or
updates by package maintainers?)

I haven't had particular problems with either "breakign code and
libraries".

Both update fine.

You are comparing apples and oranges. Both are addressing different
audiences and aren't really comparable.

> Any comment are very welcome.
The real differences are
* CentOS (and its mother RHEL) is an ultra-conservative distro, aiming
at long term support. I.e. comes with SW tending to become outdated
during it's life-time and therefore will lack features more current
distros provide.
* Fedora is close to the "bleeding edge" (sometimes beyond) and is
short-lived.

Both distros have pros and cons. Which to choose depends upon your
needs.

Very oversimplified, CentOS is better suited when wanting to "install
once and forget about it for a long time" and/or when not needing
"bleeding edge features" (typically servers).
Fedora is better suited for those people needing "modern features"
and/or having the resources/skills to cope Fedora's fast pace.

My choice is Fedora.
