> You forgot Wordperfect and Pagesteam

A slight correction: I did not forget them. They were not included
because I had never heard of Pagestream, and I thought that Corel
WordPerfect X3 could create only regular PDFs, not editable PDFs. If
you say they can, I stand corrected.

Unfortunately, Pagestream will not run on Linux amd64 unless you create
a 32-but chroot for it (a pain). And, if you have Crossover Office,
Corel WordPerfect X3 sort of runs, but not well. 

Re Cabaret: It is not a tool for creating editable PDFs, although it
might be useful for someone who must edit the PDFs. Unfortunately,
Cabaret also will not run on Linux amd64 without a 32-bit chroot (or so
Google tells me).

So I am sticking with Scribus and OpenOffice.org. Cheaper, too. :)
