Fedora Core When a group of Red Hat Fedora developers, engineers, and mangers got together last month for a three-day summit in Westford, Mass., the goal was to establish short- and long-term plans for future Fedora projects. The brainstorming session resulted in a road map that will lead to changes for the Fedora community as a whole.

Life Span vs Release Cycle

There are good argumens here. But Why does Ubuntu have the LTS release? Forced upgrades are not a particularly good solution for the server. The Desktop? On the desktop I am a feature whore and upgrade as soon as I possibly can. But if my servers are working, other than security fixes, if I don't require the new features, why upgrade?

But to get security fixes I am expected to upgrade working systems every 6-7 months for features I don't need.

Only you can decide to upgrade or not your system. You can still use it and backporting some security fixes. Afterall, SRPM are available.
