Created with Adobe InDesign on Windows.

Perhaps this is a case of "the right tool for the given job". Is there an open source package that is both stable and has equivalent set of functionality?

This is a capable desktop publishing solution. More then enough for cranking out the sort of low-grade publishing quality that you see in typical white papers.

Besides that there are a whole host of extremely capable, best-of-bread, tools for editing a wide variety of mark-up languages and the creation and manipulation of PDFs, depending on how nerdy you want to get about it.

Doesn't make sense to have a permanent designer/layout person on hire just for this. Usually you just hire a company to do this for you and they make a layout. Normally the layout+design is more important than the tools used. :P

Pff. Troff or maybe LaTeX are just fine.
