Fedora Core The latest Fedora development snapshot makes Ext4 the default file system and adds experimental support for the next generation btrfs filesystem. "According to current plans, version 11 of Fedora, which is expected to arrive in late May, will use Ext4 as its standard file system. That's what the Fedora Engineering Steering Committee (FESCo) recently decided, following a heated discussion in an IRC meeting. If however Ext3's successor encounters big problems with the pre-release versions of Fedora 11, the developers will dump that plan and revert to Ext3."

I wouldn't say unsuspecting, at least not in all cases. Take me for example, I use Fedora explicitly to dance as close to the leading/bleeding edge of things as I can reasonably get without resorting to compiling things by hand. If I wanted something more conservative I'd probably be using a RHEL variant like CentOS or maybe even Debian.
