I need a new OS.
I have one year of Kubuntu, one year of Fedora KDE and there years of Arch Linux (Openbox, KDE, i3wm).

Now I'm undecided between debian and Arch Linux as a stable System.

What do you guys recommend me?

I hate picking huge software from AUR and need to compile it, but i hate having always a, yes stable package, but under versioned...
(and, exist a Debian minimal without everything Archstyle?)

    There is a pacman like tool for AUR packages called yaourt. You should check it out

    May be it's time to try some Slackware or gentoo... ? Or just go back to windows, you don't have to compile anything AT ALL! Or maybe Android os... Soo many to chose from... Maybe you can just make some script / program to compile it for you... So you can stick with one of those Linux distros you mentioned.

    @sam0 my only problem with arch are the HUGE packages with only src...

    It's only why should i take debian, why should I take Arch?
    Of Slackware, package support worries me
