M$ publisher

Hi fellow Linux users. This is my first post to this forum, but I am in no way new to linux, I have been a debian user for about 5 years. Enough of that, to the point.
I was wondering if there is any way that I can open M$ publisher .pub files in linux, currently I have winXP in virtualBox which works but is not elegant. So is there any linux software to let me do this?

Nope, And why do I have to make 10 chars or more in my post? All I wanted to say is "Nope"

Have you tried Scribus?

Unfortunately there is no import facility for .pub files.

There is a somewhat interesting import routine
