Bleeding-edge distros?
 
Which distros are known for their support of the most current apps? For example, the latest stable Debian distro doesn't support the latest KDE, so that got me wondering which distros are known for their "up-to-dateness"?

mandrake 10

yep I am pretty sure Mandrake is the most experimental in that respect

Bleeding edge linux from scratch
 
You can also build your own bleeding edge linux from scratch and learn some more about how linux works.

However you need a starting distribution as a host system (you need a compiler, make, etc to build the stuff from sourcecode)

Might not be recommended to the total linux-newbie but you'll get a system built with the latest packages out there (and hey, you can recode them a bit as well if you want)

Moved to Linux-Distributions, as it fits here better.
