I like ArchLinux as the documentation is just really good to get you up and running.
Its this guy called Tobias Powalowski who does a great job.
I suggest having a look for the documentation and then move to the distro of choice.
The packages are really up to date. Build Date: 2014-08-01 18:12 UTC
You need to remember while installing backports you need to use apt-get -t squeeze-backports install "package" or you will pull in the standard package.
