Not if you work with large production shops

I do magazine work for a variety of major publishing companies, and every single one of them uses Adobe InDesign. Since Scribus doesn't support INDD files, I simply can't use it for any of the work I do. I suppose if you're a one-man shop with no real need to work with other production teams, Scribus might be OK. But if you actually do serious publishing work, it's not an option. This makes me sad, of course, because I love Linux and use it on my personal machine. But until I can work with InDesign files on Linux, I'll always need Mac OS or Windows on my work system.
