Open Source Desktop Publishing

[ad]Dear Computer Lady,

I really miss Print Shop by Broderbund.

Any similar open source programs?


Dear Kelly,

The Print Shop is still being published, although it looks like a company called, Encore Software is now publishing it.

There is, however an open source desktop publishing program called, Scribus at:

I have it installed on my computer at home, but I have only used it a couple of times.

My preferred desktop publishing program is PagePlus by Serif Software.
