Wow. That's interesting to see that things hadn't changed. You write of
the exact kind of experience I had during the 7.x-8.x series before I
ultimately made the same decision to look elsewhere. Being poor, I opted
to give Gentoo a try and found it to my liking for almost two years,
before finally going through the exercise of testing new distros again.
I settled on Mepis and found it a nice compromise between usability and
still being development friendly. I didn't have any trouble getting
Scribus to compile on it. Maybe give it a try since it is easy enough to
download and try out first.
