I thought Fedora filled RedHat's niche for "keeping up with the new
features even if stability suffers a bit" distributions. What is "more
conservative", exactly?

A mature-ish Fedora (i.e., one version below the the current one but
still on maintenance, between 6- and 12-months old) is usually a good
trade-off. You will always have to deal with some problematic stuff or
another, putting down small fires, but that's the blood in the
bleeding edge, people should be aware of that when they choose this
kind of distro. If you value rock-solid stability over new features go
RHEL or CentOS (which I do for my servers.)
