I think you need to use a major distribution that you like and _know 
well_. Of course you don't need to reinstall any linux distro just to 
change your desktop. E.g. in Fedora, if you want KDE, create a text file 
/etc/sysconfig/desktop containing a single line: DESKTOP=KDE, make sure 
you have kde packages (run the commmand "yum install kdebase") and you 
are set. Your desktop settings are in .kde/ of your home directory. If 
you save that, you won't lose your settings.
No distribution saves you from the trouble of having to learn the 
details if you want stability and bleeding edge software at the same 
time. It is easy to compile scribus on Fedora, that's what I do.
