But they need to more than that. My son almost cooked the engine on my 
BMW by not heeding the warning about the engine overheating. What you 
should know about a car is far from knowing how the engine works. What 
you should know about a computer is far from knowing how to program or 
how the OS works. The normal operating mode of Windows out of the box is 
completely unsafe. Compared to that, learning a few things about some 
other utilities to help Scribus help you is child's play.
