Sorry for the late reply, I was off traveling...
I can get you a F9 cd/dvd at the next blug meeting, or at the next
HackingSociety meeting next thursday...

Thats a reasonable reason...

Personally, I think Fedora does great as a desktop OS. I use it full
time for that here. As always, use what you like, and/or people you
know are using.
As others have said, you might want to look at CentOS/Ubuntu LTS for
production machines that you don't want to re-image every year.
On the other hand, depending on the applications you use you may want a
faster moving distro on your computing nodes, and just get setup to
reimage them regularly.
