Default Make your own magazine with Scribus

Dear all,

Having discovered Tuxmagazine (I cannot wait for their second issue to appear) and its attractive as well useful layout of the pdf for reading from the screen, it sprung to my mind I as an amateur should be able to do just the same with Scribus (opensource - Linux only). So, just out of curiosity, I made my own magazine.

Whether it is anywhere nearly as good as Tuxmagazine in quality or at least useful?

Judge yourselves. I had great fun making it and I have a use for it too: the older posts on my Traveller's Blog. It did not cost me anything. Slackware and Scribus are free, the webspace too, what else does one need except the creativity needed to design and write.

I hope this will be of interest to you.
