Obviously, you have not been exposed to much software if you think this is the worst. What about MS Windows?

I will agree that I found Scribus to have quite a steep learning curve, especially since I had never been exposed to any Desktop Publishing software before, and the whole paradigm was completely new to me. Also, a lot of things behave very differently than what I would have expected. Nevertheless, I find it a most powerful and useful tool. I now use it for creating all of my documents, except for the most simple ones which can be created by a text editor or OpenOffice (if placement of images and flexibility are not important).

I agree that Scribus IS a top notch product. I have seen few other open source products that provide such good support and advice.
