  • Very good

  • I've used Scribus and Gimp together at my previous work. And should I say this pair is excellent alternative to expensive proprietary software like Adobe? Yes!

  • Every three months I produce the magazine of my genealogy association. I started from scratch to use Scribus. An easy choice because I prefer using Linux and than Scribus is free. I had to learn a lot but now after 4 issues of the magazine (30+ pages in color) I feel rather confident using Scribus. I never tried another DTP-application before so I have no comparison but I must say that I am rather impressed by what I can achieve with this free application. It is clear that is is under development still and that development is not very fast. I use Scribus-svn-1.5.4.

  • I had to read some tutorials but afterwards I was able to make a very nice poster. I like this software a lot and will make every effort to learn it even more. Scribus - Gimp and Inkscape are the best trio for artsy fartsy things :)
