Precisely my point, there truly isnt much difference in the core when it comes to packages. The difference between gaim 1.5 on Fedora versus Ubuntu is slim to nothing. To say a distro is unstable based on the number of patches is a huge assumption. I would argue that the majority of the patches for most distros and most packages are bugfixes not necessarily brought on by something the distribution itself did wrong or improperly.

Distro differentiate themselve by how the implement the packages and intergrate the OS as a whole. SLED is a perfect example of this. Particularly to end-users, they could care less, most of the time,whats under the hood, they are much more concerned about things "just working".
