Open Source Alternatives to Microsoft Publisher
Microsoft Publisher is one of the harder pieces of the MS Office suite to replace for most people who use it. If you are looking for an open source or free alternative to MS Publisher, OpenSouce.com takes a look at Markup, LibreOffice and Scribus and how they may fit your needs.
Scribus is not bad at all. Crashed a few times when I made a A0 poster a few years ago and the UI was a bit weird compared to QuarkExpress, but it was doing a good job.
Thanks for mentioning.
@mlnews I've started using Scribus for birthday cards and such. Does a good job with that type of thing. Might have to take a look at Markup, and already use LibraOffice all the time.
For vector design, I use Inkscape. I've designed some logos for people with it and it works really well. I've only used Scribus a couple of times but it seemed fine when I used it.
