Well, I am using Scribus at Windows Vista, and I think it is really easy to
install. Just run the installers for Ghostscript and Scribus and all is set
up automatically. However, if Ghostscript should be bundled with Scribus it
would be somewhat easier. Besides this, it works just like a charm, so
increasing Scribus user base should be no problem.

I have not seen this problem.

Well, I agree that the help sections are in bad need of improvements.

Agreed. GIMP and Inkscape come immediately to mind.
