After using Fedora open source for the last five years, I can confirm its reliability. All features work with ease as expected, no problems whatsoever. While it does provide updates to several packages, most users agree that it is still reliable.
4. Graphical tools
Fedora is equipped with an array of graphical tools and features to help you have better control of the system. These tools include network shares, language settings, firewall, authentication, users, and web server.

Fedora open source also offers bug fixes for a more stable system, instead of introducing additional features on old versions. It does provide automatic updates to specific applications, like OpenOffice.org, Linux Kernel, KDE and Firefox. Therefore, there is no need of adding repositories with respect to unofficial builds.
