    + 1 for Arch stability.

    I get nervous everytime I see kernel updates in ubuntu as it tends to break X and nvidia driver (installed using restricted drivers manager). Never happenned to me in Arch. Never.

    True. Never actually crossed my mind. In Ubuntu I used to cringe when the kernel updates came along and a few times I had reason to cringe. The first kernel update I did in arch I also cringed because of experiences but lo and behold to this day I have never had a problem. Kernel updates are as routine and uneventfull as changing your underwear.

    I think Arch gives you peace of mind

    In general I think Fedora is more bleeding edge than Ubuntu right from the release, as you can see from 8.04 vs Fedora 9.

    And top of that, Fedora updates it's packages, which is very good if you use it as a desktop.

    Of course Arch / Gentoo are almost up to date. Except Arch has only few developers so some packages can be old for a "long" time. But then there's aur.

    If you need bleeding edge, east-to-use Linux distro, I would say go with Ubuntu Alpha/Beta.

    I don't use Arch but I won't tell the reasons so this thread doesn't go off-topic
