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.

Well, surprise, surprise. People who are actually into DTP do buy professional graphics card and get good monitors. A suitable Macintosh Quark/Pagemaker setup neither was nor is cheap, either. That is hardware, you can't really expect Pagestream to do anything about that.

Second of all, stop speaking in the perfect tense, will you? Pagestream is still being developed and sold, and there is even a Linux port in the works. And Pagestream users certainly aren't using interlaced 640x512 screens.

Did you even think for a second that maybe he was just reminiscing about how the Amiga *as a system* operated and wasn't bitching about PageStream at all?

The output from low end Amiga's was great for certain things, but for illustrative work the 60Hz interlaced display was pretty painful to look at.

Please continue to be a PageMaker fanboi and don't see the forest for the trees.
