Gee, I don't see why this fellow felt the need to slam Scribus in a 
public forum. "Different strokes..." and all that; he can use anything 
he likes. I used QuarkXpress for many years, switched to Scribus in 
revolt against the almost annual $300 upgrade charge, cooperated with 
the learning curve rather than fought it, and I'm extremely pleased with 
the results, use Scribus for all dtp publishing that I do. I put 
together newsletters and church bulletin covers, send work to printers, 
and can do everything I used to use Quark for. Sure, there's some 
differences, but so what? Quark is very good if a person can afford it, 
I suspect it works better on a Mac but I'm a Windows & Linux person. The 
upgrades on Scribus are free, so far its not become clunky with trying 
to do too much. What's not to like? Just remember the good old days of 
working in WordStar in DOS and making a text change, having to reformat 
the entire document line by line every time.
