I have been using MS Word and I disagree with you here.  Though I know
you can create text frames in MS-Word but you CANNOT move it with the
DETAILED precision as you can do in Scribus.  For example, you can set
attributes in upto several decimal places - that's not available in
Word.  As for manual kerning, I was talking about adjusting space
between each individual character of a word - you cannot do that in
word which only lets you adjust character-spacing on a single piece of
text as a whole - no adjusting of space between individual characters.
 That's why whenever I think about Scribus, the words that come to
mind are "precision" and "control".
