i can only speak for the comparison with inkscape:

- scribus has better printing oriented features (it does better pdfs)
- it has a better text handling
- (much) better handling of multipages documents.

all in all, i think that the choice will depend on the type of document you will create and its content (and of personal preference).

have a nice day
