[Scribus] Intrigued

using scribus happily and quite successfully for a literary magazine and  
am delighted about the online documentation and the functionality. Just  
one question remains:

I am using scribus 1.2.5 at home on a Laptop sporting 1.5 GB ram and a  
3100 Sempron on Ubuntu Feisty and on a Athlon 64 3500 system with 1GB ram  
on Feisty 64 (and an nvidia 6800gt). Editing a 14 page document with  
moderate graphic load feels quite sluggish on both machines.

At work I have a cheap 2.6ghz celeron with onboard intel graphics and  
256mg ram using scribus on WIndows XP, and editing the same  
document seems unbearably quick and responsive.

Is this a Linux/Windows issue, or is Scribus just so much better
