And occasionally some folks say they prefer the earlier, simpler versions over newer ones with more features. The challenge is, once a new release comes out, Adobe no longer officially sells the older version with one exception. So if you need a prior release, what do you do?

Freehand , a competitor to Adobe Illustrator and also made by Aldus, was sold to Altsys , the maker of Fontographer. By PageMaker had lost almost the entire professional market to the comparatively feature-rich QuarkXPress 3. Quark stated its intention to buy out Adobe  and to divest the combined company of PageMaker to avoid anti-trust issues. Adobe rebuffed the offer and instead continued to work on a new page layout application. The project had been started by Aldus and was code-named "Shuksan". It was later code-named "K2" and was released as InDesign 1.
