    Well, I'm pretty much over Quarks past problems, it seems they've learned their lessons, and I'm going to be checking out Xpress - I've played with the beta, and I really like the interface quite a bit more than dealing with InDesigns millions of palletes.

    CS3 shipping before Vista's finished? Possible, but it seems unlikely.



    Why, has Adobe been holding back Indesign 3 for 3 years now?

    InDesign 3 is already out, I even have InDesign 4 at work. CS 3 is the third version of the Creative Suite which will be InDesign 5, Illustrator 13, PhotoShop 10, Image Ready (?), Bridge 2 (?). A lot easier to market them as a suite with the same numbering than the mismach of version numbers of all the products that come with the suite, which is how most people probably buy the programs.

    Whups, I meant CS3. My previous comment was just to point out that if Adobe held back releases for Microsoft's Vista, they'd have released no new products or updates since 2003 when Vista was originally scheduled to ship.... :P

    That makes sense. I don't think it makes sense to tie the release of any software to an operating system that's not yet shipping, unless you are paid a huge sum to do so, and I think that would have to be a huge sum for Vista. I can't imagine making the software specify a new operating system until it has been accepted for a year or you have a vested interest in promoting the operating system and not the software. Apple does that, and Microsoft does, but Adobe doesn't have an OS.

    Great. New features to sloooow down my CS even more so than its unbearibly done now.



    I'll settle for a speed increase of about 250%. Now THAT is something worth upgrading for!

    Now that Quark is under new management, I think they have truely made an effort to remedy their past mistakes (educational pricing, new features, improved interface, better PhotoShop integration, etc.)



    I haven't used version 7 yet, but one this I have always hated about Quark is all the tedious menu crawling you have to do. I MUCH prefer pallettes to menus for most things... so much faster to access. Now that Xpress finally has a contextual pallette, maybe I will not feel so constrained by the interface...



    Still, Im sticking to InDesign for most projects (at least the ones I dont have to work on collaboratively with my Xpress-Centric coworkers)
