All Fedora releases are supported for about 1 year. Specifically: There are new releases about twice a year, and the most recent two are supported. Currently (2015 July), those are 21 and 22. Once 23 is released in the fall/winter (or so), then 21 will no longer be supported.

If you require in a much longer support period (but, at the cost of not always having the latest things), you might consider Red Hat Enterprise Linux ( ), which requires purchase, or its free (no cost) sibling, Community Enterprise OS ( ) instead.

XFCE Fedora does not affect the version. All of those spins follow the same stable kernel and userland package release, which is 22 as of this writing. XFCE is just a drop-on interface.
