Best free desktop publishing software
Reviews say Scribus rivals Adobe InDesign CS5.5 for capability, with sophisticated text and layout tools. It runs on Linux as well as on Windows and Mac operating systems. Only a few templates are provided, but an extensive community of users provides an ever-evolving list of free templates, and technical support. Scribus integrates with GIMP, another open-source program, for editing graphics. Scribus is geared toward small-business use, and can export PDF files with good color management and color separations. The software gets mixed reviews for its interface and ease of use, and kudos for its integration with other types of freeware.
