I disagree with you there...Have you ever tried to install, say Fedora 1-2months after release? Unless you use a respin, upgrading with development tools weighs in at more like 3-400MB. It sometimes has less to do with the distro and more to do with the actual packages installed.

If the maintainer patches, Ubuntu, Fedura, SUSE , whoever, patches...not a real sign of how good the distro is, just because it has alot of patches to install.

Yes but outside the packages, what's different about other distros?

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".
