There is a community expectation among Mac faithful that you pay Uncle Steve on a regular schedule.  If that doesn't sit well, then you can pay Uncle Bill.  If you can't stand either option, then use Linux.

There are other (and to my mind, better) reasons to go with Linux, but 
this isn't the right place for that type of discussion.  And, I might 
add, I personally use Fedora Linux which is on a 6 to 9 month release 
cycle, with only the two most recent versions supported.  I doubt I'd be 
as willing to do that if the upgrades weren't free.

there are different reasons to use a working hardware, as long as it is working.

Scribus 1.3.9 may be installed successfully under Mac OS x 10.4 with a G4 processor.

Martin Costable pulled me through.
