Equivalent of MS Publisher

A friend who uses OO says that she has an OO equivalent of MS Publisher. She has a PC whereas I use an iMac. Can anybody enlighten me please?

OO Writer can do much layout equivalent to MS Publisher. For more detailed work, Scribus is often recommended. Since I switched from Widows and MS Office to linux ten years ago I have not needed to use Adobe Indesign or Pagemaker for layout, but my layouts (since then) have mostly been plain text book layout, with the exception of a few 32 page illustrated brochures, which OO Writer handled well. Try OO, it is free. If you don't find it suits, go back to Publisher.
