openSUSE, in a way. Enable the GNOME Stable obs repo. But it ain't entirely smooth. There is also tumbleweed, a rolling repo (no, it is not for testing like Debian testing or rawhide, we have Factory for that). Note that openSUSE works a bit different than other distros thanks to OBS, we use a github like model for distro package development.

Heh, I see great irony in the idea of switching from Ubuntu to openSUSE because of a GNOME repository, since I'm a longtime KDE user who always saw SuSE as the place I'd go if I valued KDE purity over Debian-based administration. I'll have to keep it in mind.

Your base system is one single packet? And the apps are single packets and have no other dependencies than that base packet?

Why the devil would anybody want such an abomination? A bug in a library (and you would have to put a _lot_ of them into the "OS" part) and you are welcome to download hundred of megabytes of binaries. That's completely insane.

Diff-based binary patches are nothing new. Android uses them just fine.
