I have two PDFs:

One comparing InDesign CS4, FrameMaker 9, and QuarkXPress 8

The older one comparing InDesign CS3, FrameMaker 8, and QuarkXPress 7
<http://www.ideastraining.com/PDFs/SelectingDTPprogram.pdf>

What program one chooses greatly depends on the type of projects one will
work on. If one is working on a large variety of projects--such as books,
newsletters, brochures, and proposals--I would look hard at InDesign. If
strictly working with larger book-type projects, one has to look at the
features of each program vs. what is needed (such as typographic quality or
column-spanning heads).

Another thing to look at is the equipment one has; typically InDesign
requires more computing power and RAM to run smoothly compared to
FrameMaker.
