  I have run Redhat, Fedora and Arch servers. HAnds down arch wins for a 
server setup.

  Change happens - always. Wigth Arch the changes are fed to me in small 
chunks - I get to deal with one change at a time (e.g. changing to 
systemd) Any given change might be smaller or larger but with Arch I can 
focus on dealing with that single change.

  With non-rolling releases, every couple of years (or 6 - 9 months for 
Fedora) I have to do a fresh install containing all the changes.

  Rolling release model is far superior - and as others have pointed out 
Arch stays close to upstream and you can keep your systems current which 
of course means fewer exploit opportunities for the bad guys.
