I know that this is a little off topic, but if you want a "real" Desktop Publishing Suite,
(InDesign, specifically). They cannot do MailMerges like in OpenOffice or M$, but it's
to use than M$ and looks a lot more professional.
As a side note, OpenOffice, as of 1.1.2, does not have a Publisher type equivalent. It
also does not
have an Access equivalent, hence MySQL interoperability.

I'm not familiar with Publisher, but I gues that it is supposed to help you make
publications in a
kind of desktop pulishing way.
In the article at http://www.newsforge.com/article.pl?sid=04/10/04/150207
the author compares Writer (the wordprocessing part of OpenOffice.org) with Adobe's
Maybe that will help you a bit.
It's worth mentioning that the current version OpenOffice.org 1.1.4 will soon be replaced
by a major
upgrade as the 2.0 beta has recently become available. On http://www.openoffice.org you
can read all
about the new features in this release.
I use both OpenOffice.org and MS Office and both have their pros and cons.
