I'd vote for Arch with "IgnorePkg = linux linux-headers", had it for 2 years on both my main machine and my mining rigs, very low maintenance, if not systemd it would still be my main distro.

gentoo, opensuse or debian here. The main advantage of Suse is Yast, its management software. It made linux as easier to manage than ubuntu, but 10 years before ubuntu.

Also, I found than a gentoo ~arch is more stable than debian. Gigantic piece of software like libreoffice are very easy to hang on all binary distributions I tested or used.

It also depend of what software do you want. When using external repositories, it is just a question of time before you will get some serious trouble with the binary distributions. It was the main reason why I shifted to gentoo, and I never get in serious trouble because of an overlay not being in sync with the main distribution. In the worst case, you fix the buggy ebuild, make a report, and that's it. With apt-get, it happened to me than the update find a conflict in the middle of the update. The result was a completely broken system, like with windows when the less time consuming solution is to run "format c:".
