Um, why do *you* use Scribus when there are Openoffice, Abiword or similar?

Word processors are not DTP apps - and Scribus's graphical layout tools are
probably easier for kids to use than, say, OOo's rather crippled layout

I think Scribus in schools is great - expose them to good tools, and they
won't abuse OOo or MSWord later in life to produce crappy layouts!

Moderation in all things, of course - some of the computer-addicted kids
I've met really bother me, and I'm a computer addict myself...
