Well, after 13 years of editing SF magazines on my trusty Acorn Risc PC with Ovation Pro, it was finally time to upgrade. Ovation Pro was still great for the magazine, but I was using my PC for more and more things (OK, games), and having more than one computer was becoming a pain and just taking up too much space.
Whilst I did consider Ovation Pro for the PC, Euporie (issue 34) was the first issue of Jupiter to be produced using Scribus, an opensource DTP package. Whilst it has its quirks, and I'll always love the way RISC OS worked, for a piece of software that cost zero, it is amazing. A really comprehensive package that will hopefully see me through the next 13 years!
