Re: Can i use Fedora for live server?
Using Fedora for a server is NOT SMART. fedora changes revs every 6 months. You really don't want to re-install and revision test all of your services every 6 month. If you want to play with Fedora service as a learning experience that's fine. FWIW I have in the past used Fedora for my little soho services (mail, file sharing, VPN) and eventually it's an old unsupported distro or else I have to spend a couple days every 6 months to patch things and learn the new interfaces.
Recently I've started using Scientific Linux (similar to centos) inside a KVM virtualization on top of F16. This way I get the stablility of RHEL/Centos/SciLinux and I can migrate the KVMs as needed. If my server hardware breaks I can run the same KVM image on another system instantly. Upgrading the Fedora underneath is a much smaller problem.

In F16 it's ImageMagick-184.108.40.206-4.fc16
