Interesting Applications for Skolelinux

Dear List,

browsing the list of replacements for winapps [1], I found these apps 
worth being taken into conideration for further releases. Maybe, some 
of you know the software and can spend their penny on it... :)

1. Scribus (GPL) 
"Scribus is a Layout program for GNU/Linux®, similar to Adobe® 
PageMaker™, QuarkXPress™ or Adobe® InDesign™, except that it is 
published under the GNU GPL." [2]

2. Varkon - "a free CAD system and  high level development tool for 
Engineering, Computer Aided Design and Product Modeling applications 
originally developed by Microform AB in Sweden. 
Now maintained and further developed by 
the CAD group at the Department of 
Technology at Örebro university in Sweden.  [3]

3. R - "R is a language and environment for statistical computing and 
graphics. It is a GNU project which is similar to the S language and 
environment which was developed at Bell Laboratories (formerly AT&T, 
now Lucent Technologies) by John Chambers and colleagues. R can be 
considered as a different implementation of S. There are some important 
differences, but much code written for S runs unaltered under R. " [4]
