    Long live 3.34

    I use to love Quark. 3.34 rocked. It was painful for me to migrate over to InDesign. Did use Quark 4 for a while but didn't care for the changes. Played with Quark 5, liked it even less. Never had a good experience with Quark tech support.

    The past couple of years I kinda forgot Quark even existed.

    Quark is done.

    Now a day everywhere is using inDesign. Quark's day is about to be over just like PageMaker. The only folks who is still using Quark are old timers (like Mr. Long-Live Joe who works for his corporation for the last 30 years type of guy) and die-hard fans.

    True, Coffeetime, but

    it IS kind of a shame that people can't evaluate the product on its own merits anymore. I haven't used Xpress in years, but ISTR they were clawing their way back to a good-quality product last I looked. Hopefully reviewers can let us know if QX9 deserves some reconsideration or not.

    I think it would be a good thing if Adobe got some competition in this area, not that I have anything against InDesign.
