Hello, folks!

Coming from a very high powered Adobe, Canon, design and printing 
environment, I've had to temper what to expect from the Open Source 
Linux DTP arena, at least for the time being.

It will take some time before Scribus gets up to the speed of an 
InDesign CS, PageMaker 6.5, or a QuarkExpress, in terms of features and 
ease of use. The program is getting mature and the programmers are 
certainly moving in the right direction. I believe in another year or 
two Scribus will take a backseat to nothing out there today.

So let us use Scribus for what it can do, offer priorities, and upgrade 
as the new stable versions come out.

Thanks to all who support Open Source.
