First, welcome to the forum. You ask a loaded question when you ask "What is desktop publishing." It's a broad field. There are people doing brochures and flyers and there are people doing full scale magazines. The type of equipment you use depends on what you plan to do. If your intent is to do flyers, brochures, newsletters, etc. on a local level then Printshop is certainly something worth having. You can also use MS Publisher for a few things, but I wouldn't try running any desktop publishing company without also having Adobe InDesign and/or QuarkXPress. Both are versatile and capable of the handling the most sophisticated publishing projects. I wish you the best of luck. I think you are off to a good start by joining a forum like this.
