Scribus on Mac OS X, at least the 1.3.3.x stable version is so slow  
and unresponsive that it is not usable on the Mac as far as I am  
concerned. One of the problems is that it doesn't use the latest  
major version of Qt, which doesn't perform well on the Mac. I heard  
some where that this was done, because they wanted to make it  
available for Windows and Qt 4 wasn't open source with the right  
license for that. So basically it sounds like they chose the Windows  
version over the Mac version.
