"Remember Amiga? Well, if you're old enough to remember that platform, then you might remember the Pagestream desktop publishing system. Pagestream began in 1986 as Publishing Partner for the Atari Computers. By 1989 it was ported for the Amiga platform with its current name Pagestream. Around 1996 Pagestream enjoyed a jump to the Macintosh platform. And finally, in the present, Pagestream is enjoying new life on the Linux, Mac, and Windows operating system.

"Although Linux already enjoys a few powerful DTP applications (Scribus for one), Mac enjoys Pagemaker and Quark Xpress, and Windows enjoys Publisher (and others), there is always room for more. And Pagestream takes a sort of "GIMP-like" approach to the UI – so Linux users will be comfortable with working around the elements of the tool. In this article I will show you how to get working with Pagestream."
