Without starting any tool or platform wars...

I'm about to inherit a slew of marketing documents that are in Quark on the Mac. I'm a regular Windows user, but there are
a couple of under-utilized Macs in-house that I could share.

So, should I order Quark for Mac and be on the safe side
despite the inconvenience of having to share a machine? Or
is the compatibility between the two platform versions good
enough that I can buy Quark for Windows without any x-platform


I can't give you a direct answer to your question (I assume someone else will), but before you buy Quark for the PC, consider buying InDesign for the PC. It _should_ be able to open the Quark files, although there may be some gotcha in terms of the way they were saved on the Mac and then opening them on a PC. You'd have to do a little research on that question.

In any case, once you have imported them into InDesign, you should be in a better position to maintain them going forward.
