    Interesting. I had thought PageMaker was discontinued years ago.

    No, it's just been on life support.

    Well, that software was the biggest pain I've ever used. May it rest it peace.

    Most definitely a GOOD thing

    I like the way Adobe handled the PageMaker situation; first checking with their customers for interest in InDesign, then offering a way to easily upgrade. If I were a graphics designer, I would applaud Adobe's decision to provide PageMaker users with an almost hassle-free transition to InDesign from PageMaker.

    well, this just reenforces what i told my bosses a few weeks ago...that we would have to upgrade our pagemaker 7 to indesign cs sooner rather than later. i love getting new software.
