Framemaker

It's Framemaker Month, and its 25th Anniversary

Fellow Framemaker junkies on the "Framers" list have pointed me to a recent and very upbeat posting on Framemaker, which turns 25 this month. Those who are familiar with my work style know that I've been a Framemaker junkie for about 20 years.

MS Word versus Framemaker

I've been using Framemaker to create large documents for almost two decades. I'm currently participating in an email discussion group of Frame users, and someone asked about comparing Microsoft Word and Frame. Someone else suggested Googling for the answer, since lots of people like to talk about it.

So, here is my own contribution to the question.

 

A Microsoft-Centric World

Back in the 1970s when many of us were struggling to free ourselves from mainframes, the mantra in the computing world was "Nobody ever got fired for choosing IBM." No doubt Bill Gates was inspired by this to build his own empire. Today, people unblushingly swap "IBM" for "Microsoft" in that mantra.

Since converting back to the Macintosh I've been learning a lot about Microsoft-centric software. Several programs that ran on both systems have essentially withered, especially since the conversion to OS X. I'm most directly affected by Microsoft-centric teams at Intuit and at Adobe.
