Business: Quark or Pagemaker 6.0

if you intend to do 4 colour work go with QuarkXPress. No
Opinions run high in which is best. Up until PageMaker 6.0,
PageMaker had some serious problems, and most
professionals went Quark. When Adobe took over Aldus, they
listened to the issues surrounding PM problems, and most are
corrected. Quark is still a tiny bit more flexible, but PageMaker
certainly has its positive side as well. I am someone that goes
from program to program very easily.
In terms of hiring, more designers know Quark.
I would suggest trying to get some demo versions of each and
you make your own decision.
I have a feeling that you will end of with both, especially if you
have clients that give files in both formats.
