Magazine Making Software For "System 6"

Hey!

Let's say I wanted to make a magazine with text & pictures.

What's the BEST program for a Macintosh with these specs....

OS > System 6
CPU > 68030
RAM > 8 MB
HDD > 80 MB

Later!

QuarkXpress

I recomend an old version of QuarkXpress, version 1 or 2 should work on System 6. If not then ClarisWorks 1 or 2 (possibly 3) works (excuse the pun) with System 6. Of course, if you cannot get hold of these then I'm not sure what you should useā€¦

Aldus?

Hey,

Aldus Pagemaker rings a distant bell. I haven't researched this just responding to a tickling stimuli.

Quark & Aldus

So happens I have both Quark XPress 3.2 and Aldus Pagemaker 5.0. Minimum for XPress is stated as System 6.0.5, 3MB RAM, though it says it will run with 1MB under 6; no indication of harddisk requirements, but from experience, it wasn't much. Pagemaker's requirements are a bit loftier; System 6.0.7 with Finder 6.1.7, 5-8MB RAM, and a solid 80MB harddisk space.
I've not run either under 6, but that's what it states right here on the packaging. Your results may vary. Personally, I'd go with XPress.

I was fond of using ReadySetG

I was fond of using ReadySetGo! at the time. I think v4 or 5 would be the versions to look for.

Quark is evil.

QuarkXPress is evil. We used to use it at work a lot, but then switched to Adobe InDesign, which is better by leaps and bounds. In the very least, Adobe trusts its customers enough to not stick them with copy protection...every time the Quark licensing server goes down, we get flooded with calls from users still using XPress who can't do their jobs.

I rather like Quark, though I never got used to using anything over version 4. I think it may have just been that I learned on it though.

InDesign is a nice program, I just don't know how to use it well enough. But if you get the CS suite, the price is really reasonable. Especially compared to Quark.

Quark held up our migration of several computers to OS X as well. We didn't want to run one of our major programs in classic mode.
