Scribus: Professional page layout for Linux

Posted by: Anonymous [ip: 82.0.178.98] on January 04, 2008 01:34 AM
I used Ventura Publisher (first Xerox then take over by Corel who made it more complicated, not better, then it has gone AWOL) in the 286/P3 age to publish long (350 pages) technical books with many tables + graphics (in B+W admitedly). It was a great programme (you could edit the raw markup files when needed) and way better than PageMaker at the time. Does anyone know what happened to it? Scribus has a similar 'feel', though it is crap for tables. If Corel released the code for Ventura and some was incorporated in Scribus, that would be awesome.
