I agree. Maintaining an Arch install is also very simple, but requires
some attention, that by a so called user-friendly distro isn't needed.

For example, the filesystem hierarchy standard changed perhaps 2 or 3
years ago. For most users this was a trouble-free transition, but by
the nature of this kind of change, it wasn't trouble-free for
everybody.

A released based model distro could make such a transition much
user-friendlier.

It doesn't harm to regularly read the Arch news, before upgrading,
while it's less important for an Ubuntu install, to read Ubuntu news.
