Features, Office On July 15, 2003 the Scribus project had a milestone release. They released Scribus 1.0. I have used Scribus both personally and professionally since the early development times. 8.0 was when I first used it. 1.0 came with so many bug fixes and has become so refined I decided to do a review of it.

I will have to agree. Scribus is a good personal DTP solution, but as it stands today, it stops there. It is a honest effort though, as there is nothing similar for Unices so far, so it is a good thing to have a free alternative. Not that it will take away any market share from PageMaker, InDesign or Quark Xpress (it won't), but it is still good to have it around. ;)

> people will be touting this program as being on-par with QuarkXPress in the same way that OSS zealots tout Ardour as being the same caliber of application as ProTools

Or Gimp on par with Photoshop. ;) ;)
