Allegedly, on or about 27 June 2018, Rick Stevens sent:
Almost no-one running a commercial venture runs Fedora because of
potential stability issues AND the fact that updates are only
available for Fedora for "current release less one" (updates stopped
for F26 one month after F28 came out). RHEL and CentOS generally have
a 3-year or more lifespan. No, they're not current, but they ARE
supported. Fedora 26 isn't, for example. F27 will be supported until
one month after F29 comes out.
I can attest to that. If you run anything that has a database, even
websites and email services, keeping all that going across an OS
upgrade is a real pain. With Fedora having such a short lifespan, that
amount of pain means you end up leaving servers running with ancient

There is no point trying to privately email me, I only get to see
the messages posted to the mailing list.
I reserve the right to be as hypocritical as the next person.
