I'm seriously concidering of getting rid of my win-partition but there are some programs I realy need. One of them is ms-publisher. Not that I realy need to have publisher but I need a DTP application for writing documentation.

When search the internet I can't get a clear answer on the question: "what program can I use for doing some light DTP work on linux?"

Can somebody recommend an application?

Sorry for this late reply.

Linux doesn't have a prof. DTP package yet.
But the application to check is Sodipodi
The last time I tried it (about 6 months ago) it was not stable enough for me, but I have read some good things about it in the time.

I use Sodipodi for quite some time now to do light DTP, and I haven't noticed its unstability.
It works just fine for me

Sodipodi is a vector drawing program. It could be used for DTP but the real DTP program for linux is Scribus.

Scribus hat a slow start but it is really developing to a mature DTP package now.
