I totally understand how you feel, however I don't really plan to switch (not in the near future at least). As an ex-Gentoo user, I know how it is living with a rolling based distro, but at some point I got kinda tired of it. There was too much sys admin going on (not really Gentoo's fault as I was using the unstable tree, but stable was always too old for my "needs" and would be the fun on it?
). The problem wasn't the compilation of the packages btw. At some point, I switched to ubuntu and well... after a while I switched back to fedora. Ubuntu had some good points, but overall I was disappointed by most of their choices on the desktop, the subsystem etc.
What I wish fedora had, is an LTS release (a system supported and updated for 2 years). And yeah, I know there is RedHat and Centos (I use them for my servers), but their stack gets too outdated for desktop/workstation usage (again for my needs). Updates on key packages would be the most important part (upstream latest versions). Packages like libreoffice, graphics stack, kernel (already there), xorg, firefox/chromium etc would make the whole platform perfect for my needs.
PS: as a user I use my desktop for media consumption, some 3d gaming, browsing, etc. As a developer, I work on web development (php, nodejs, sql and the usual mix), some light android/java development and finally some remote administration.
