Hi Greg,

you're right, but the last paragraph was:

"This is not to say that Scribus is of poor quality: on the contrary, the 
production overall is quite polished, and when installed it seems to run with 
few problems. Rather we?d say that one who likes the open source alternative 
should keep their eyes on Scribus. It?s in a stage of development now that 
suggests that, as it nears maturity, with the passion and obvious devotion of 
the Scribus team, this could be the Open Source layout tool."

This can be read both ways, of course, but I think it is written in a way that 
keeps the balance between candour and the interests of advertisers ;)
