    Yes Quark, ID beats the PANTS off of you. We dropped Quark like a rock in January, and haven't looked back. So has most everyone else I know.

    What Quark has done these past couple years is reminiscent of what Apple was doing back in the 90's. They think they are dominating the market, so they stop innovating, and sit back and relax. Before they know it, they are being smacked on the back of the head by another company, and are left scrambling to catch up.

    As we all know, Apple survived, and has not stopped innovating since.
    As for Quark, may they rest in peace.

    Gone but not forgotten.
    Some are moving, most are not. It's not as though the floodgates have been opened, but it's also a bigger leak than Quark would have anyone believe.

    Of course, for some, Mac OS X compatibility wasn't an issue because they were using Windows. I would say that's more of a migration since print and scanning hardware works the same as it did. It may not work that well, though.
