The only people using Fedora are those who want to fix the problems in Fedora. It is not suitable for general use at this time. You will have similar problems if you use any other unsupported release such as Ubuntu or Android on the RPi. These are only for people who are willing to put in a serious amount of effort.
Please don't dismiss Fedora quite so quickly... If based on the images from http://scotland.proximity.on.ca/arm-nightlies/vault/
as a starting point, Fedora17 works just fine on the Raspi. The kernel being used here is the standard one from rpi-update. "Yum" works as expected and it's regularly updated.
Granted that it is less of an "out of the box" experience and does require some effort, there are lots of good reasons for using Fedora17, not the least of which is that if you are from a RedHat background, it's extremely familiar.
