I just happened to come across a very interesting tool today. Until recently, desktop publishing was an expensive trade (it still is if you don’t use the right tools.) Yet, there could be many good uses for desktop publishing tools for the home/work/school user.
One very good use would be to create professional looking newsletters for your club or organization.
I came across just the tool for that. It is called Scribus. Scribus is liscensed under the GPL, so it is opensource and free to use. I think I may mess around with it some more this summer, and see what I can learn about it. It may be a great tool to publish newsletters or mini newspapers about the student association. Also it could be used as a way to develop recuriting materials for a club.
You can find Scribus at http://docs.scribus.net/index.php?lang=en&page=specs.
