I would like to thank scribus team for the windows port. I am not allowed to
install linux on my business computer, so I had to use scribus on a Linux
Live CD, which wasn't a good solution.
I hope that by using Scribus and other open source softwares and talking
about it, I contribute to their general widespread. In my opinion, people
who are using opensource softwares are more willing to test linux...
