On more serious note: every defender of the monolithic 
repositories mentions Google and Facebook. It may be worthy to 
emphasize that neither of these companies produce any software 
which would be publicly used (I guess that Android IS in the 
separate distro). A particularly Google is known not being able 
(or not caring) to produce anything which would keep stable API 
on the outside and using standard libraries (see Chromium) and 
I don't believe that this style of development is something to 
be admired.
