Just a follow-up to Scott's note -- Adobe's FrameMaker upgrade policy is one of the most liberal that I've seen from a major software company. You can purchase FrameMaker 7.2 for Windows at the upgrade price of $199 USD if you have _any_ previous version of FrameMaker or FrameMaker+SGML (the UNIX price is slightly higher).
Adobe has publicly stated that a new release of FrameMaker will be available this year. If the new version is a major release (e.g., FrameMaker 8.0), one can speculate that the upgrade price may be substantially higher. As a data point, the upgrade price for FrameMaker 7.0 was approximately $400 USD. -Alan Scott Prentice wrote: > Hi... > > I just noticed a couple of good FM deals on eBay. > > > FrameMaker Server 7.2 Windows - $2,950.00 (save $4000 off retail!) > > > http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&viewitem=&item=300097209620 > > FrameMaker 7.2 Full Version for Windows - $579.95 (save $220 off retail) > > > http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&viewitem=&item=110110291360 > > > Disclaimer ..
