MISC: Open-Source Software for Mac

In honor of my shiny new Macbook, some open-source apps for the Mac. I am running smooth as can be with Firefox and NeoOffice, but am still looking for Mac replacements for MS Publisher (I make a lot of booklets for teaching) and Front Page. I suspect I might be able to tinker with Neo Office to get the job done, but there has to be a more elegant way...

The Drawing app inside Open/NeoOffice is essentially MS Publisher... at least it seems to replicate most of the functionality I can see as a non-Publisher user.

If you haven't already done so, I would suggest checking out http://www.fremacware.com. They have a lot of free and open-source options as well as an RSS feed to keep you current.

You also might try Scribus. It's a more professional-grade layout program (although it's got some relatively minor stability problems on Windows).

But if you're using Publisher, Draw would probably be the better way to roll.
