Just my thoughts from what people have written in this thread and from my own limited experiences.

Inkscape is not a DTP program. It's a vector grahics program, like Corel Draw. You can use it to make an ad for the newspaper, or a one page flyer, but no way do want to try a booklet or something else with it.

Never used LaTex, but isn't it geared more to doing math and science documents where proper formula formatting is important?
