I'm a Fedora (and Fedora EPEL) developer, so I either use Fedora or
Fedora-derived distro (RHEL/CentOS) everywhere.  As a rule, the decision
for which I want to run comes down to how often it will be acceptable to
do major updates.  If it will be a system that's hands-on (or needs to
be, because it is something security-related), I run Fedora.  If it is
something that needs to be hands-off (like something that runs odd-ball
software), I run CentOS, or RHEL if the software it needs to run
requires it (and some commercial software does).
