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 disagree partly with what you've said. While it's true that the (most likely paid) Windows troll are becoming increasingly vocal and numerous on the discussion threads, Eugenia has remained pretty objective. I often get the feeling that she is very critical of GNU/Linux systems and software (especially on the UI side) not becomes she thinks it sucks, but because she wants them to be the best that they can be. In my view it is similar to an army officer having its son serve under him - in order to avoid accusations of favoritism, he will most probably be more demanding of his son than of the others. I could be mistaken, but this is how I see Eugenia's criticism. It's sometimes unfairly strict, but never overly so.

Anyway, as a die-hard Linux advocate (and part-time Windows user) I really enjoy this site, though I do wish that the more zealous Windows advocates (Windrones, as I call them) would actually stick to the facts and not invent defects Linux doesn't have (or refer to problems that have already been solved) in their criticism of the Free OS.
