Actually, not true.
Fedora 12 has, not an awful choice, and at least better than the 
1.3.4 that came out with F11.

But these are the distros choices, and believe me we tried to get Fedora 
to correct their mistake. I filed a bug, with the reasons not to use 
1.3.4, and the response was that they could find no user complaints, so 
they immediately closed the bug.

These issues are not unique to Linux. I've had many a problem with 
Windows that seemed to be simply unsolvable after wasting my time 
troubleshooting ad nauseum. At least with Scribus you can come here or 
on IRC and get a fairly quick answer from people, not programmed websites.
