Quoting: pleasereadthemanualArch can get a lot of updates. It's the fastest package manager around, but some computers I don't touch for weeks and they need to upgrade 1000 packages. It can take up to 15 minutes.

Heh. I have a Gentoo rig that wasn't touched in over a year. It took a little longer than 15 minutes to update.

Sidenote, but how did this meme originate? NASA is a little fish compared to the Department of Energy when it comes to supercomputing activity.

OpenSUSE Tumbleweed here, with KDE Plasma on the desktop. I've been an OpenSUSE user since 2006 and whilst I have tried both Fedora and Ubuntu at various times, I found they didn't seem to have the ease of configuration that I find with YaST.

Pros: very up-to-date, YaST and lost of excellent community repos.

Cons: manually installing the latest Nvidia driver sometimes risks a conflict with Mesa libraries. This is relatively easy to fix but still rather irritating. Nvidia does provide an RPM repo, however, but I like to be able to meddle with drivers so this is really a problem of my own creation :-)
