[Scribus] GIMP and the future of Open Source DTP

No doubt The Gimp is a great program.  I used to use it all the time when I 
first started to do Photography.  But the problem came when I first started 
to use Photoshop.  Now when I go to use The Gimp, I feel as though I am 
taking a few steps backwards.  One of the biggest problems do lie with the 
plugins.  The Gimp has a lot of plugins, but I do not feel as though they 
are being maintained, or even developed at the pace of the rest of the 
world.  I would love to see The Gimp move forward, with such vast 
improvements that it would want to make me feel as though Photoshop was just 
an expensive toy.
