Red Hat and Fedora are Poles Apart
While Fedora is too bleeding edge, Red Hat (and Centos) is too conservative. They are poles apart and don't offer anything in between.
While most of the people in Linux World know what to use, the rest of the world has no exact idea. For example seasoned Linux Administrators will never deploy Fedora as Server or Desktop, they will stick with RHEL or Centos.
My previous employer wanted to replace its entire Windows platform with Linux. To ensure the transition smooth, my CEO hired a Linux consultant.
