Scribus – Free Adobe InDesign And QuarkXPress Alernative

I have used DTP (Desktop Publishing or page layout software) software like QuarkXPress, PageMaker and InDesign more than 10 years and always looking for any freeware alternative. And there is one – It’s called Scribus and has a lot of the features InDesign boasts. It should also be great for making PDF files (just like InDesign).

Scribus is an open-source program that brings award-winning professional page layout to Linux/Unix, MacOS X, OS/2 and Windows desktops with a combination of “press-ready” output and new approaches to page layout. Underneath the modern and user friendly interface, Scribus supports professional publishing features, such as CMYK color, separations, ICC color management and versatile PDF creation.
