    I personally advise against "bleeding edge" stuff, more trouble then they are worth.

    Debian Experimental is probably the most up to date, but it's almost completely unusable!

    i think debian sid or sidux since the packages are barely tested before they are sent to the repos

    Yeah I value my system's stability. That's why I won't use Lenny until it becomes stable.

    Arch is generally stable from me, unless you go experimental.

    Arch is a rolling release distro but unlike debian sid, only stable and tested packages get into main repositories.

    If you want to roll with Arch akin to sid, use testing repository. Packages get into testing repo as soon as there is an upstream release.

    Arch favors only stable packages.

    yeah my arch installation has almost never crashed (I got a kernel panic once :X (bluetooth driver) but that isnt unusual considering I get those on almost every distro I have used extensivley.

    My Arch install has only ever crashed on the Openbox end, & that was completely due to user intervention!

    Arch seems to me to be the most consistently up to date Linux distro', which is reliable to boot. (pun intended)

    Any time I want the latest & greatest all I have to do is type:

    sudo pacman -Syu

    The more often I do it the less time it takes.

    I left it for a couple of weeks & it took 10 minutes the other day.
