Why not debian stable? IMO, if you are looking for stability then it is
the ideal choice. RHEL/Centos has comparable stability, but lacks things
such as stable backports and the large collection of software available
Gentoo, fedora, [x|u|k]buntu, Arch are what I would consider
"bleeding-edge" distros. They can be excellent if the desire is for new
software, but new software is often less-tested software. This leaves
you to find and file (sometimes even obvious) bugs.
With that said, you also have issues of "bit rot" with more stable
distros. They ship older software which leads to issues with hardware
support and adapting new technologies (eg. pidgin and changes to the msn
protocol), thus creating bugs.
You seem to be bouncing back and forth between bleeding-edge distros, in
search of stability, where you will not find it IMO.
