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.

GIMP's UI
by archie steel on Fri 18th Jul 2003 04:38 UTC

As for GIMP, I've tried nearly every version of it (including the unstable 1.3 series), and I've found the UI absolutely horrid.

Well, to each his own, I suppose. But I wonder, since I've heard this a lot: what element of the UI do you find so horrid? Is it just because you're not used to it? Personnally, I love the new docking dialogs in 1.3, and the icons in the menus help navigate to the correct option quickly. I also think the "Save" dialogs (especially for JPG) are superior to Photoshop's.

The only thing I'm still not used to is the way you select empty space in GIMP vs. Photoshop. But apart from that I enjoy using both apps (GIMP at home, Photoshop at work).
