I doubt you'll see this, but, I use Arch on all of the systems that support it (7 now) and the only problem I've found is you get broken dependancies easily, like chromium uses libpng, it gets upgraded but libpng doesn't and chromium won't start because it can't find the newer version of libpng. Other than that it's pretty stable, and if you constantly upgrade to the latest stuff you shouldn't havethose problems. Personally I use ALSA.

Depends on the distro. Most mainstream distros have horribly out-of-date software (by choice). There are distros that do keep near-bleeding edge software in their repos, Arch Linux is one such distro, I've seen packages appear for new releases within a few days, at worst I've seen a package only a few revisions behind.

Sametime? Run far far away. It is the most bloated client I've ever used for any chat protocol, it crashes frequently enough and when it does it will sometimes prevent the user from rejoining a group chat, requiring a new one be made and everyone move over. There isn't a way for people to join a group chat on their own accord and must be invited, nor is there a way to auto accept invites. Any time you need to copy/paste a chat log it must be manually edited so it becomes even remotely readable and some of the GUI settings work contradictory to what you'd expect (like disabling smileys, it just does not work).
