When I started working with Docbook, Passivetex was a mistery to me and RenderX was not on the map yet. I've set up all my tool chains to work with Fop as the PDF/PS/PCL rederer so I don't see a reason to change. However there are still times when I'm about to shell out money and spend it on RenderX because of their more complete support of the FO specification, but I'd rather wait and see where FOP goes from where we are right now.
