i would not want to start a flame war here, since this smells alot like:
- vim vs emacs
- kde vs gnome
- ...

everyone has his/her preferences and i would not have it any other way,
since the diversity an the choice offered towards us (if you are,
developer, tu, server end user, desktop end user) is what makes this
distributions ecosystem worthwile.

the drive for stability should not put a brake on new technologies.

let us have a nice combined effort and have a choice, that is for me at
least one of the reasons for using ArchLinux and for keep on using it.
