Question MS Publisher


Who has ever used MS Publisher?
I have to admit: I like it
Is there linux software that can do the same job?
It is the last reason I still use a windows machine.
Save me!
Thanks in advance for your suggestions.

Personally, having used both MS Publisher and OpenOffice.org's oodraw, I must admit that I really, really, no completely prefer OOo's app! I just find it so much more 'intuitive' (if you can ever use that term for computer apps) than Pub.

If, however, you really can't live without Pub, then I would look into either using it under WINE, or CrossOver or VMWare. Any will allow you to run Windows software (although not all Windows software, except VMWare) under Linux.

Thanks Thymox:
I use VMWare all the time, and that's why I'm still using Publisher. I actually have Open Office, but had never investigated the Draw program. I will now.
I've never been able to get Wine going, but I've never seriously tried, either.
Oh yes! Mandrake is nice isn't it?
Don't suppose you've figured out how to get a POP3 server going on linux, have you? The only posts I've seen on this seem to assume that everyone knows the command line lingo. And here's one guy who doesn't.
Thanks again.
