Uh? I cannot speak for Fedora but sure openSUSE is rock-solid and has 
stable release cycle. I was using it in my servers and workstations for 
the last 6 years.

Besides, the OP did mention nothing about "enterprise" or "long term", 
just "distros/operating systems" so the table is very good but leaves 
many other distros (Archlinux, openSUSE, Fedora, Gentoo, 
openSolaris...) :-)

I guess no. As I already said, 13 months is their EOL support cycle.
