One of the things I would hope we can do when people ask questions like 
Mr. Culleton's, is to refrain from saying negative things about one 
distro or another; perhaps better just to mention positive features of 
whatever one(s) you prefer. There are several list members who use 
Fedora and find it stable, easy to use and update, and certainly 
wouldn't characterize it as experimental. In fact, the FAQs on Fedora's 
site do not say this.

 From their site:
*"Fedora Core* is a *free* operating system that offers the best 
combination of *stable* and *cutting-edge* software that exists in the 
free software world."

One of the things I did before installing Fedora, and do every time I 
consider upgrading to the next release, is to take a look at 
fedora-list, where you can easily get a sense of the kinds of 
installation, driver, and other problems people are having, as well as 
solutions to most if not all.

There are many reasonable choices for a Linux distro that plays well 
with Scribus.
