Default Why does everyone hate MS Publisher?

It seems like this is the program that people dislike, and I am wondering why that is?

Not worth the money? Too many better alternatives? Bad experiences?

Depending on what your final output is for. Publisher just doesn't cut the mustard so to speak. Many, many much better programs out there.

In the world of Offset printing it is terrible to work with...it has gotten better but still just amateur software.
So i guess my answer is all of the above...

It's not up to par with professional graphic software.
It is clearly lacking in many areas to even be considered as a usable platform for anything related to the industry.
Usually, customers will bring their own design from using it, which we simply convert to pdf and then work with the file using Illustrator.

MS Publisher is a desktop publisher, not a graphics program, there is no comparison. As publishers go, MS is not that bad. I have used it since it was version one. So I guess I pretty much know it inside out. I use it for almost everything that has to do with publishing; letterhead, businesscards, brochures, flyers, signs, etc. Not good for designing anything to do with t-shirts, leave that to Corel Draw and Photoshop.

Of course it is not good as a graphic software because it is NOT graphic software. It is a word processor. Why would anyone use a word processor to do graphics????
