Scribus: Professional page layout for Linux?

Not everyone likes the standard DTP software interface. I have spent time in DTP companies, and I have yet to have to get near Quark, Pagemaker, or InDesign. This makes me happy, because I hate them all. There is only one program I will use, and only one program that everyone else uses in the part of the world I live. Corel Draw. Two of these DTP companies actually switched from Pagemaker to Corel Draw soon after hearing from other companies how fast Corel Draw is.

Until Scribus or Inkscape start looking at the toolset of Corel Draw, they are only trying to appeal to people who get chubbies off bragging about how much their software costs. These are free, so will not supply said chubbies for these users.
