I'm running Fedora Core 1 (upgraded from formerly RH8 then RH9) on one of my PCs 
that I use daily and it's been solid, reliable and full-featured.  I really like 
it.  However, it seems a bit "heavy" for an audio application...  It's got a lot 
of fluff that gets installed without any real choice in the matter.  I have 
learned that cleaner is better for my audio PC.

Of course rpm binaries and a familiar environment is a big plus.
