I reckon that's one of the worst reasons a person could have, given that the cost of the box is such a small percentage of job costs.

That's not altogether uncommon. I think there are a couple of reasons.

One is that Quark has been around for a long time, with very little in the way of changes, so people know where the bodies are buried. There's an enormous body of knowledge of what to do and what not to do with QXP.

The other is due to the fact that InDesign is more powerful and has a lot more options. It's a lot easier to press the wrong button in the cockpit of an airliner than it is in a car.
