Andreas Pfeiffer is a respected independent analyst in the publishing industry, and his comments in this video recorded by Quark is most enlightening:
QuarkXPress 8 is almost three times faster than the previous releases. A three-times increase in productivity is very unusual.
His comments relate to real-world use, on common projects (not just processing speed and so forth). This means a significant increase in productivity for users of previous versions of QuarkXPress.
If you’re considering upgrading to version 8, you’ll see some powerful, real-world examples in this 5-minute video.
While you’re there, check out the other QuarkXPress 8 videos. They’re quite persuasive!
