PDF files have become an industry standard in desktop publishing, as they allow authors to create perfectly formatted files with relatively small memory demands. Reading PDFs is simple, requiring only Adobe's Acrobat Reader, a free program that comes pre-installed on many machines. Editing or creating PDFs is more complicated, however, and has historically required purchasing expensive desktop publishing software. Scribus is an open-source alternative that boasts many of the same features in a small, entirely free package.
