Scribus is the answer you'll get from everybody, but I don't think that
it will read Publisher files. It might be an idea to have a look at
Scribus and see if it meets your needs - I think it's more aimed at
Quark users than Publisher users i.e. it may be heavy on powerful
features, and light on wizards.
Don't get TOO stuck on file format compatibility - you may find that
you can address that via the machines which will stay on Windows anyway
for accounts etc. while new work is done with Scribus.
