gotta agree with drjones, i'd really love impression on my linux boxes (never used ovpro+) i really don't like scribus, and i'd prefer a port to an emulator.

does anyone know if xara is actually doing this free xaralx project, or if it was a load of bull, last time i looked they hadn't even updated the 2nd alpha, which was essentially little more than !awviewer. inkscape is crap imho, but better than draw. i really liked xarax on windows, it killed illustrator for ease of use.

techwriter, well i prefer it to word, but i've never really used it technically, i used to use the publisher+, tablemate, equasor (sp?) combo. oowriter is plenty for me for invoices, cv's etc.

photodesk - hmm, i'm getting into the gimp, and find it easier than photoshop, photodesk was always a bit limited for me, simple dropshadows seemed to require too many steps.

as far as stronged goes, you have to be kidding, linux is *the* text editor platform, kate, xemacs or nedit totally p*** all over stronged - i always preferred zap anyway ;-)
