Some more stuff:
The closest approximation of punisher on *nix is scribus.
http://www.scribus.org/ It does not, and looks like it never will, open
Various sources suggest either converting to EPS or to DOC and then more
conversions on the linux side.
http://wiki.scribus.net/index.php/Import_Publisher_to_Scribus has a
working solution....but how well I really don't know. I much like the
