I use OpenSUSE. The few things I've not been able to find in their stock repos (most notably a non-braindead version of VLC) have always been available in the alternative repos which can be located simply by searching (Packman rocks, BTW). The only stuff I ever *have* to compile on anything like a regular basis is for work.

The AC was thoughtful enough to offer a very literate respone to you, despite the fact that portions of your original post did not even parse. Counter the AC's assertions with something better than your implied "I think I'm special, so anything that doesn't reinforce that notion for me is bad" or GTFO.
