Tell the automatic updater to inform you about updates, but not install them. This way you can plan your updates like you need them, problem solved.

Make it so all computer users require a learners permit first!

Antergos is an excellent "easy Arch" distro, and from my experience, Arch is very stable.

Best bleeding edge distro for a newbie

I don't think a newbie should be using a rolling/bleeding edge distro to many thing can go wrong that you won't be able to fix.

When I was newer I liked bleeding edge because you get more and yes data-backups, bugs and reinstalls too. Many may learn faster with a school of hard knocks and all, or just more tools? For me (average on Debian) Sid usually runs well tho I keep others along side in case.

Keep in mind you probably should not do your taxes with it, hell don't do your taxe$?!
