That is simply not the case. InDesign still does not have more 
marketshare than Quark, and it didn't really take hold until it was 
bundled in the CS suite. V1&2 were both originally intended for Mac OS9, 
and it wasn't until Adobe shipped CS which included an OSX-only version 
of InDesign that it was really embraced. There were *many* bugs in the 
first two versions that kept people at bay. And FWIW, many designers 
here is Texas are still loyal to Quark. Personally, I like Indesign 
because it previews better than Quark does, but v7 is supposed to be 
pretty slick.
