    hi,
    i did a search for this but didn't get the answer i was looking for.

    i know that this version of Fedora is not listed on the compatability list.

    but has anyone ever tried it? and if you have what were the results?

    Is there any valid reason why you want to use FC and not a different OS with a longer lifespan?

    CentOS is a clone of a RedHat Enterprise and has a lifespan of about 5 - 7 years and it's free as in beer.

    I agree with this and recommend CentOS.

    well, it's kind of too late now because we already re-installed core4 to make it work with cpanel. :rolleyes:

    ...is CentOS significantly different/better than fedora? or is it just the life span? also, how long is the average life span for fedora?

    Go on, have a guess
    Average lifespan for Fedora is 4~6 months, for CentOS it's 5~7 years. CentOS is built on the RedHat Enterprise Server source rpms and as such is an enterprise level operating system and ideal for productions servers including web servers as it offers stability and security. Fedora Core is for bleeding edge developers who don't mind having to upgrade their OS every 4 months - by definition it is less secure and certainly less stable and therefore a poor choice for production linux servers:

    Well put...

    I learned this a long time ago...

    Fedora is great to play with @ home - but I have since grown up... :)
    still keep my toys though.
