    Open Source Page Layout Program for Mac OSX

    I'm searching around an open source alternative to Quark and InDesign. Does anyone know of any open source applications for DTP, desktop publishing, page layout, for the Mac OSX. I know someone that bought a Mac G4 notebook, dropped a ton of money for it, and doesn't want to drop another $600-800 for a page layout app like Quark and InDesign. He's going to be using the system as a demo, not actually designing things. Kind of complicated story, but he's not going to be actually "using" the DTP, just showing how another app ties in with these programs. I checked out: http://scribus.net/ , but I want to know if anybody has other alternatives.

    Of course nothing open source is going to compete with those applications but you may want to point them to Open Office... Not as good as those but it has page layout possibilities.

    I have read a lot of great things about scribus. I don't know if they have a compiled OSX version or not though.
