Well, actually there is one more at least and that would be PageStream. 
It is listed at v4.1, but should actually be 0.5, as it is not usable
for anything but opening on the screen.  It's an Atari & Amiga leftover
that is very good on those platforms.  It's also available for Windows &
Mac, but those are not up to the Amiga version and I believe the Mac
version is for System 9.x, nothing more.

Of course, there's no need to mention TeX or LaTeX in Linux because
those are big standbys real DTP experts use already.  With the new crop
of GUI types though, Linux is certain to gain ground in this area,
especially as good as Scribus is and will become.
