No wonder, CentOS is meant for servers, not for a desktop. Stability is 
far more important than carrying the latest versions. This is from their 
website (www.centos.org):

"CentOS is not your everyday Linux. It's a server distribution, meant to 
be used in production environment where users do not care about what 
applications they have installed. It's a distro that you will most 
likely run without any GUI, reboot once every other year or so, if that, 
and upgrade only when you really must, since the inclusion of even 
simplest binaries could be dreadfully risky for your setup."

There is nothing wrong with CentOS, it is simply not the right 
distribution for using Scribus.

>> Is the recommendation in that order? Maybe not but I thought I would ask. I know everyone has their favorite. I have tried for the past week to down either the Live version of OpenSUSE or the DVD version and have not been able to. I did finally get the Live version of onto a disc but when I tried to boot up from said disc it got about half way through then threw up a screen that was filled with a pattern of some sort and hung up on me. The DVD version on my computer here at home wants to take almost a whole day. And now my Ubuntu machine is acting up. :-(
