Fedora Core "There has been a long standing rumor regarding NASA running Fedora which all of us in the Fedora community have been always intrigued by. Is it true? What are they doing with it there? Why don't they run RHEL. Fortunately enough, a couple of weeks ago, I got to experience NASA behind the scenes, first hand, and hang out with the coolest members of the Fedora community, and find out the answer to these questions and lots more."

They are stable and fine ... but you have to remember that it comes down to the user base in a lot of cases. The more people who like X means the easier it is to get approval/consensus to use X. While the BSD's are great OS's, there are probably far fewer people pushing for them as there (at least seem to be) fewer users of the OS's. The same thing goes with Slackware. It's a nice and simple distribution but in terms of users it seems to not be very high on the list.
