The Irony Of It All...

Anyone here remember Quark Xpress?

Once desktop publishing really took off, they were charging $695 for their publishing software. In 1980 / 1990 dollars.

They were arrogant, dismissive, expensive.

Along comes two-trick pony Adobe (PS, IL) with Creative Suite + InDesign, and customers abandoned Quark in droves.

Along the way, publishing as an atomic endeavour died out and killed the Quark Publishing System.

Every dog has its day.
