Fedora 21 is in the alpha state right now, I'm not a critical mission 900.000.000$ enterprise to lose anything valuable and I would like to test it. My question is if I install Fedora 21 as my main system, will it be helpful for the developers to find bugs and improve it?

Yes, but if you do encounter a bug, please search bugzilla to see if has already been reported before creating a new bug.

Bug reports is the primary means of feedback for pre-releases such as alpha or beta

Indeed it is very helpful to test Fedora 21 on real hardware. As Mat Booth said though it's always a good routine to check if bugs have already been logged.

Although if you're using the automatic bug reporting tool it should check for duplicates and just cc you to the bug post if it is found to be a duplicate.

Enjoy Fedora :)
