Scribus has the capability of inline images; you can cut an image frame,
enter text
edit mode and paste the image into the textframe. You can also paste other
(graphics or even other textfraames).

Unfortunately there are some limitations: 
* you can't edit the inlined frame
* if you copy/paste the containing textframe, all inline frames are lost

In the future these limitations will be fixed; and there will probably also
be settings
on how the inline frame is anchored (e.g. for margin notes).

So for the time I would advice you to stick with OpenOffice.
