Nope, not bleeding edge, just faster-moving than the server additions.
Fedora is supposed to have 3-4 releases per year, compared to one
release every 1-2+ years.
For those who want bleeding, there's always rawhide, but it's NOT stable
most of the time.
Fedora is the "testing bed" for the enterprise versions of RedHat, which
means that they're still going for overall stability. But since their
release cycle is more ambitious than the older non-enterprise RedHat,
they'll push through software versions faster. Just not as fast as
"bleeding" distros like Mandrake. Fedora/RedHat have also shown a lot
more interest in Gnome, so KDE/Qt stuff tends to get less attention.
Fedora is supposed to help with this, but I'm sure it'll be a slow
