Best alternative to expensive softwares such as Adobe InDesign. It lets you create professional high quality pdfs for personal or commercial usage. Has a steep learning curve but youtube has many videos explaining how to use it. My favorite for years.

Pretty good. I installed Scribus Win32 on several personal computers, and it has been quite stable, and does what I need it to do. Best of all, it's open source, and modestly supported. I like QuarkXPress, since I have been using it for over a decade, but man... That price tag just kills me.

It's an excellent program, though I think if it came with free professional templates catagorized, it would be a great software for students who use Microsoft Publisher to get their crappy templates.

HI
I'm a pro and I use it
I create books and comics, primarly, and scribus has all I need
Obviously it hasn't all the 'coolness' of indesing but it's more easy to use, lighter and it's free and opensource (that's really relevant from an ethical point of view)

Esencial
