Good guess. To be fair he probably only has the
one OS to work with. My take is that he only
encountered Scribus to write a book about it. 

In my about to be revised ebook I just directed
people to the site and let them follow the
directions there. I did in a line what took him
7 pages. My take is that if you are not savvy
enough to download from the site and follow the
directions you aren't ready for Scribus.
