I have considered it, but when I read that it can be a bit more resource hungry I decided it was not worth it. Also, there are so many that says it works fine and an equal number that say the opposite.
A while back Fedora Magazine had an article about someone that said most of his computers run Rawhide. I emailed him and asked if he had any tips, he told me to read the Fedora wiki about Rawhide... Which basically makes you think, after reading it, nope, not touching that with a ten foot pole.
As of now, the upgrade to next release in fedora is pretty smooth, and the release cycle is frequent, so fedora (stable) is like a pseudo-rolling release.
As I mentioned, it just works for me.
Then again, I guess I've been lucky with my hardware and set up.
