somebody, buys an apple computer -- a brand known for not supporting
machines and software for a long time -- and complains that open source
software can't make wonders.

well, open source can somehow make wonders: you're free to install any
low resources linux on your mac and get the newest and shiny scribus
working on it.
faster and ever.

also, the fact that scribus is open sources allows you to team
up with other people and produce *and distribute*(!) a .dmg/.pkg that
indeed works on your older os x!
you will have to put some efforts in it, but it will very likely work!

and you would not be the first one doing such a crazy thing!
while scribus can be installed in different ways on lot of platform,
the team provides only a few of them.
portable apps, ubuntu/debian, os 2, bsd, haiku, homebrew, macports and
lot of other installation files are (afaik) not directly provided by
the scribus team.

scribus is a collaborative effort and you can be part of it!
