The closest open-source desktop publishing program to Adobe InDesign is called Scribus. It comes with integrated color control, separation, and much more. The Scribus is the page layout for Windows, Linux, and MAC. Scribus has grown from its modest beginnings in the spring of 2001 to become one of the top Open Source desktop programs. The Scribus Team is dedicated to developing and improving “one of the most powerful and helpful open-source projects out there” with the help of a huge and rising number of enthusiastic people from all over the world (TechRepublic). Scribus includes professional publishing tools including CMYK colors, spot colors, ICC color management, and flexible PDF production underneath a user-friendly interface. Powerful vector drawing capabilities, support for a vast array of file types via import/export filters, color blindness emulation, and the rendering of markup languages like LaTeX or Lilypond inside Scribus are just a few of the surprising features that make Scribus unique. The open, XML-based Scribus file format is free to use. With a basic text editor, even corrupted documents can be retrieved, which is frequently difficult with proprietary binary file formats.
