initial version

In short, no. However, as @mattdm said, try http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Server. In Fedora 21, they are planning to make a version of Fedora meant to be a server. However, I personally do not recommend this as Fedora is a relatively fast moving distro, and stability is the key to a server. If you prefer Debian-like distros, go for:

  • Debian Squeeze
  • Ubuntu 14.04 LTS
  • Linux Mint 17

If you like Red Hat-like systems, go for:

  • PCLinuxOS 2014
  • Centos 6.5/7
  • Fedora Server Edition 21
  • Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.5/7

Debian Squeeze

Amazing Stability, Good Community support, Long life

Cons:

No recent packages, Some packages have unsatisfied deps (Skype), Old kernel

Ubuntu 14.04 LTS

Not as stable as Debian, resource-hog (little bit)

Linux Mint 17

Pros:

Relatively stable, new packages, easy to use, good support
