We also have a "biggest" newspaper here. It's only because they have so 
many pages. They really don't care about how many trees they use to 
produce this, day after day, year after year... I prefer to read my 
"little" newspaper, less pages, less publicity, heavier content!

I read a *google-translation* ... (you kind of have to guess throughtout 
the text what they are saying!). Seems interesting anyways. If I 
understood correctly, they are asking why isn't there a .doc filter to 
import into Scribus. Considering Scribus is Open Source, I'd bet the 
answer is "use Open Source software like OpenOffice.org to open up your 
.doc documents and you'll be very happy!". Another answer is "We're 
sorry, we only have so much time to code and support for .doc is not on 
our radar screen yet." Anyways, I don't know how many people read this 
paper... But the question is asked.

If I was asked this question, my answer would be: "Scribus is Open 
Source. When .doc will be open source..."
