<G>  Because if you are in business, you want to keep costs to a 
minimum.  And there's a growing number of people who would buy CS 
whatever, but they don't like the subscription model at all.

You also gain a reputation.  That reputation can be good or bad.  You 
can write books, you could sell small help books on Amazon, and probably 
a number of other related things that can done in order to generate some 

I'll bet Greg and Christoph wouldn't mind selling more Scribus books if 
there are more users.  LOL

As I mentioned at least twice, I don't have the skills for coding.  I 
learned many, many years ago, when I took a community college course on 
programming in the Basic language, that was not a job field for me.  LOL

One of my reasons for the suggestions to Scribus is I would like to see 
easier to use software for the Linux platform.  Speaking for myself, I'm 
d@@ned tired of the two big elephants in the room basically telling 
people how they will use and what they will buy for computers.

Mac OS X 10.11.6
Firefox 49.0.1
Thunderbird 45.3.0

      and it's gone!"
