I was leaning toward Quark for the reasons you mentioned, but I've discovered that my old Xtension that converts PageMaker files to Quark does not work in Quark 7 (or version 6 -- I'd never tried it, since I so rarely get PageMaker files), and Markzware no longer produces the Xtension for PC, only for Mac.

That's one thing I always hated -- a lot of Xtensions haven't been made available (or kept updated) for Windows users.

Anyway, this means I'd need to use Quark 5 (which I still have installed) every time I got a new PageMaker file, convert it using my old Xtension, close it, and then reopen the file in Quark 7.

I'm not sure I want to keep jumping through so many hoops, when InDesign will open the PageMaker files directly.

If I start working in InDesign and get really stuck, I can buy a Xtension to convert InDesign files to Quark (and that one IS available for PC).

Life was easier when I only had ONE page layout program!
