@keithpeter:

I got pretty sick of the usual point release guys (read - Ubuntu based) not keeping up with a few programs I actually had a need for the newest version of. After adding a few ppa's and doing a few compiles of other things and eventually getting to do it all over again after a dist-upgrade I just decided it was easier to go rolling and then I can do individual upgrades when an update I know I want comes out.

Laziness grips me though, and when a bunch of packages plus dependencies need updating I'll skip going through the Arch forums and just let everything go at once.

It's not always fatal. :)
