Fedora Server Version


I wish to download Fedora Server. When I go to the download page,
http://fedoraproject.org/en/get-fedora

It states "Get Fedora 12 Desktop Edition Now"

Does this Include the Server version? I don't want the desktop version, I want the Fedora Linux Server version.

The install will allow you to select server components or consider what they call spins.

Might consider centos if you only want a server based on RH sources or scientific linux.

If you want a server, you want Centos or similar. Fedora only lasts 13 mths, then you have to install a new version & it's an R&D distro; bleeding edge.
Centos is a free version of RHEL and has updates for 7 yrs.
