A distinction without much difference. One sentence expands on the other.  I 
could list a dozen things that the KDE Developers need to fix with existing 
KDE apps and with the GUI itself before they take on more apps. But of 
course I am just a user, not a developer. 

From the user viewpoint Scribus has a more natural relationship to Gimp, to 
TeX, to Open Office Writer, to Adobe Acrobat,  to Inkscape.  I just don't see 
much synergism between KDE apps and Scribus. And the KDE development cycle 
is much more ponderous than the Scribus way.  

IMO thanks, but no thanks. I continue to use some KDE apps but I have given 
up on KDE as a GUI.
