[dev] Linux distros that don't suck too too much

Hi folks,

A few nights ago my too-expensive laptop met with too-cheap wine and now
it is a far-too-expensive brick. As it's therefore time for me to
install a new OS on a new laptop, I was wondering what people would
recommend. I've been using Debian Stable for years now, which while it
sucks does work well enough that I don't have to think about it very
much, so I can do more interesting things with my time. But particularly
after reading a few good articles about issues with debian [0] [1] I
find myself wondering if there's a better option out there. A rolling
release distribution would be fine with me, but only if it didn't break
often at all; I enjoyed using Gentoo years ago when I was a student, but
keeping it working took a lot of time that I do not want to dedicate to
keeping a working system these days. I'd like to try something like
morpheus [2], but I suspect that would take quite a lot of time and
energy to get going and maintain.

Any suggestions / thoughts?
