For a spot of Friday afternoon FM trivia, NeXT FrameMaker can import 
native AI files.

"Modern" apps such as InDesign and Apple's Pages use the actual vector 
data in imported EPS files for display, so graphics look beautiful 

I was going to add that Mac OS X's Quartz text smoothing makes Windows 
ClearType technology look like I've put my Dad's glasses on by mistake, 
but I won't. But then, Adobe's "major" apps use Adobe's CoolType, which 
gets around the issue for those serious about type.
