Fedora comes out every 6 months. Isn't that up-to-date enough for you? Unlike some distros, you won't need a re-install: updating works fine.
The thing is, I started out with Fedora 8 - loved it, but there are no more updates for it...
No no, that's not the point at all...the six months (and the full re-install eventually) are what drove me away
way back when, sad though. I liked it, but a reinstall and reconfig took too much time out of running projects.
But...it seems (seems, dunnow yet) that I fell victim to the april fool's prank the community "elders" played on us...
Look at this thread https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?id=116055
and judge for yourself.
That's why I love Arch...it is a rolling release, does not HAVE to be bleeding edge, but MUST be stable enough to be usable...
