Hey Tim,

One consideration is "how long is this OS version going to be  
receiving updates?" or "Do I do the operations team any favor by  
having them upgrade every 6 months?"

Personally, I'd avoid Fedora for a production cluster because the lack  
of long-lived releases means that you'll be spending extra effort on  
upgrading the OS.
