I have to disagree, there! As the name would suggest, I'm a big fan of QuarkXPress AND I'm in the publishing biz just outputting PDF/X1a files of a 240-page book as I type this. Sure, it's not without bugs, but what application hasn't got bugs? I've been using it for the past 15 years without any problems.ora said:and seem to be rapidly replacing Quark as the Industry standard layout program (or so my friends who work in publishing and the media tell me).
Interesting points!! I hadn't really paid attention to the macromedia takeover. As it goes, I'm a long term Adobe user (as i remember i used Photoshop 2.5LE and Illustrator 5.5 to begin with). On the other hand, I agree, you need competition to avoid contracting windozitis.CaptainQuark said:quite apart from which, now that Adobe has acquired Macromedia, they are starting to monopolise the market in an unhealthy way. As a Freehand user, I'm seriously concerned that it will die at the hands of Illustrator!
The market needs a good, strong QuarkXpress!
