"You can call it market prospecting. You can call it political rebellion against Microsoft. Whatever you call it, more and more brand-name software companies are starting to shift some of their product lines over to the Linux platform. We, as Linux users new and old, can only benefit by this migration, which started as a trickle and is rapidly approaching a deluge."

"Recent entries to this flood of new products for Linux include the WordPerfect Office 2000 suite and now the appearance of a brand-new application type for Linux: a desktop-publishing application as robust as anything you will find on Windows."

"Adobe FrameMaker 5.5.6 for Linux was released for public beta earlier this spring and it is giving Linux user the newfound ability to create documents via desktop publishing. This is something that the Linux community sorely needed, especially for the smaller companies who see Linux as a more financially sound investment but still needed something to generate their internal and external documentation."

"...For now, I strongly recommend any users who want to get some serious control over their document creation to download this beta and enter the world of desktop publishing on a Linux platform. With the online manual to get you over the interface hurdles, you will find yourself using an excellent Linux DP application."
