you seem to be missing the point.  yes it cost $99 and yes it is for windows
only, but it won't open a scribus generated form, but yet abrobat (which
costs more than $99) and reader (which is free) can open a scribus generated
pdf.  then why wouldn't the scribus team want to allow other pdf programs
like nitro pdf to open their pdf files?
