It is a matter of personal preference. Rolling distros have advantage,
that the users keep getting the latest software versions in their
updates as soon as they are released instead of waiting for six months
or so when their distro gets upgraded. On the other hand, non-rolling
distros enjoy more stability (though this is only my speculation as I
have not used any rolling distro yet) as they don't provide drastically
updated software packages in their stable archive.

Guess I made it understandable.
