    Default Freeware publisher?

    Anyone know of a “freeware” publisher, read only program? Our grandbabies school sends us newsletters and we don’t have Publisher. I did a Google and it just brings up Microsoft’s version. Thanks, Iam

    Scribus isn't bad, although it's Linux only - so you'll need a PC with Linux installed to use it.

    It's basically an open source implementation of Adobe InDesign / PageMaker.

    Edit: Ignore this, it's irrelevant - didn't quite realise what you wanted at first.

    Must be an affluent area if the parents all have MS Publisher

    Maybe you should remind the school to use an open source format or at least PDF the newsletter. Are the letters actually sent in .PUB format?

    If you receive a Publisher (.pub) file in e-mail and you are unable to open it, you can download a trial version of Publisher.

    By using the trial version, you can also find out more about how Office Publisher 2007 can help you quickly create professional-looking publications.

    After the trial expires, you can still use the trial version as a viewer for Publisher files, even though you can no longer create or change publications.
