[Scribus] Why do?

I believe that the problem is that people want this software to be all 
things to all people.  Many people, including myself are new to this 
program, but like many other's, I have taken the time to understand the 
program, and learn to use it.  Believe me, I am far from being called 
anything but a super novice, and I know that many of the tasks I perform 
could be handled better, but the fact is I just use it, and learn from it.

My guess is that many people do not feel that they need to learn anything, 
and it should all be made super easy, with 1000 templates to get them 
started.  The problem is when you load those templates, you will still need 
an understanding of how to customize them for your needs.

Without trying to sound like I am attacking a certain group of people, I 
feel that you need to spend time and learn the product you want to use.  I 
knew nothing of Scribus when I started using it, and now I am creating 
forms, flyers, coupons and more with it.  I use it on an almost daily basis, 
and I love it.  I am no pro, and not even an intermediate.  I am a novice 
user that likes to experiment and learn.
