Frankly, by the time somebody packaged the client up for Fedora, the whole BitCoin market will have likely crashed. BitCoin is, at best, an unstable market heading for a brutal end; and at worst, a way for you to inadvertently fund illicit activities.
If you look into how the concept actually works, you will see that the whole scheme is unsustainable. The more BitCoins there are in circulation, the harder it becomes to create one, until it gets to the point that no more coins can be created. Already, it isn't even feasible to generate your own coins unless you are doing it on the GPU (CPU generation is now out of the question). Overall, BitCoin was very lucrative for early adopters (if you generated a few hundred when they were easy to do and sold them today, you could have made tens of thousands of dollars), but it is too late to get into it now.
Plus, all that aside, there aren't many places that actually accept BitCoins.
I do think that the idea of an Internet currency could work, but it doesn't look like BitCoin will be it.
