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. ;)

Considering that Adobe does have UNIX version of their Photoshop, Illustrator and Framemaker, it would be nice if they ported them from Motif to qt, update them and make them available for Linux and other *NIXs.
