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've used both Photoshop and Gimp and don't seem to have a problem with either interface, they are just different. But then I'm not an artist (picky as hell) either. For Mandrake users, RPMs do exist and can be had at Texstar's excellent FTP site, catch the link via pclinuxonline.com. As far as Scribus goes, I don't know squit about DTP so I'll leave that for those that do. Something new to play with though. IMO, what these free programs provide is a launching point for people who want to see what this stuff is about without having to purchase outrageously price applications before they are ready to. I hate when people rage against free software because it doesn't have this or that feature. What do you expect? It's free for cryin out loud and a gift. I suppose you all return Christmas gifts too.
