How long term is your long term need? Fedora is focused on progress, but isn't so forward that stability is lost. End of life support is extended for 1 year after it's release for example Fedora 16 will be supported until Fedora 18 ships.

You hearing that Fedora is unstable I will attest to being incorrect. I use Fedora as my daily machine everyday with no problems. If you're worried about stability stay away from Rawhide and the testing repos.

A second option is to use an Enterprise designed needs and honestly, not really necessary for somebody like yourself for home use. If it is absolutely required, I suggest using Scientific Linux 6 or Red Hat Enterprise Linux.
