Adobe InDesign is putting the squeeze on QuarkXPress in the publishing-layout arena, if a recently published
a PC Magazine article
is any indication. In a hands-on test, the mag rates InDesign 2.0 better than QuarkXPress 5.0.

PC Magazine critiques the strength and weaknesses of the latest version of both applications. Though they give thumbs-up to both, the review says that QuarkXPress is “beginning to show its age” and Adobe InDesign seems posed to become the publishing software “of the future.”
Adobe has also won some new converts in the Mac market by releasing a Carbon version of InDesign. A Mac OS X native version of QuarkXPress is supposedly in the works. Quark has offered neither a definite timetable for its arrival nor a specific upgrade path for users who purchase QuarkXPress 5.0 in its current, Classic-only Mac OS implementation.
