Just going to have to stick my 2 cents in for Gentoo, even though it might not 
be your stuff or you might not have the wish to compile stuff often. However, 
I turned on the old Duron 900 here which hasnt been on since late September. 
It spent quite awhile updating, over 170 packages including all of Gnome and 
KDE (over 600mb of source tarballs) and I had NO issues with upgrades..

process: Turn on, login in, emerge sync, emerge -uaDv world, etc-update and 
update any config files and it was done. Life in a perfect world.. ahh :)
