Well, I'm no longer in the pro market but I used to be for years. I use
Scribus to do printed work, and also the designs for web pages. The pace
at which the project is moving points to it being a tool as powerful as
InDesign soon, within the next year. I've used PageMaker and then
InDesign 1.0 through CS since about 1988 to a few months ago. The only
thing I miss in Scribus is the lack of Gaussian blur shadows, but I do
have faith that it is coming. The 1.3cvs version has drop shadows for
text now, so blurring and elongating the drops shouldn't be that
difficult in code.
I do believe in Europe their is lots of traction already for many types
of pro jobs, but not the slick magazine types. Others here on the list
will likely give you a feel for the European market. I'm Northern
