    Good Desktop Publisher?

    What is a good, fairly simply to use desktop publishing program.

    It will be for some beginning students for a project. It can't take weeks to learn the program, but it still should have good functionality to allow them to do what they want.

    I've read about Scribus, any others out there?

    Thats what I've heard. I am just afraid I am going to overwhelm them.

    For most of them, they have had only one semester of basic computer (its high school students) on Windows.

    I guess I'll just run them through some tutorials before jumping into the project.

    Thanks

    Of open source only Passepartout, but it doesn't cut it yet.

    There is a couple of proprietary ones, but I wouldn't rely on them.
