I just got a new computer and upgraded to Windows 7. I am running
Inkscape, GIMP, and Scribus as well as a couple of other open source
apps and they all seem to run fine. I only had one crash with Inkscape
but nothing too serious that I was working on that caused great grief.
I am running Scribus 1.3.6svn but haven't really done much with it yet
as I have been working mostly with Inkscape. So far though I haven't
encountered any problems with this version of Scribus. I like this new
machine and am not letting any of my family get near it. So far after
working about a week and a half with Window 7 I rather like it.
