Anywhere in the world I won't use Debian, because of the fact that
packages shipped are modified and patched a lot. That means other people
(packagers) are doing the job of developers, and like all people that
doesn't do their job, sometimes errors happen (do you remember the
PRNG?).

We (as users) should require vanilla packages, or at least patched with
patches from official developers (e.g. we have 1.2.0 bugged, meanwhile
1.2.1 is out we should have 1.2.0 patched).

So, I'd suggest one that is fully-controlled by the community and where
each people in the chain has the right job (developers should develop, and
packagers should package), like ArchLinux, or another one of your
preference.
