It's not as obscure as all that, either.  Recently, I was talking with a 
friend of mine, John DeChancie.  (He's a published SF author, but not a 
best seller, for those of you who don't follow that genre.)  He's 
interested in getting more involved in the layout and publication of his 
work so I suggested Scribus.  I was quite pleasantly surprised to hear 
somebody else in the room comment that she was well familiar with 
Scribus as she'd used it at a former job.  She said that it was quite 
capable of doing everything John needs, although it has a bit of a 
learning curve.  I responded that everything worth using has a learning 

More people than you'd think use, or are aware of Scribus; it's just 
that they don't often have a reason to mention it.  Designing some sort 
of "Made with Scribus" logo and getting people to use it might be just 
what we need to bring our user base up.  I'd help, but alas, my talents 
don't include the visual arts.
