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.

Just plai, not better...

I am not convinced this is right way to have DTP on free Unices: it's awfully slow and unresponsive (on a dual 1,4 MHz Athlon box).

Why make free bloatware?

Years ago I had a better alternative with PageStream 2.2 on Amiga: granted, it was only free (as in beer) not free (as in speech), but it worked quite well on a 40 MHz 12MB 68030 Amiga.

No, definitely not convinced...
