As to what's best, that depends on the job.
As for what's the most fun, I can only speak from experience on PageMaker
and FrameMaker. While I can use FrameMaker reasonably proficiently, and
prefer it for some tasks, I really love to work in PageMaker. I find it
easy to work in, versatile, and it has some great capabilities for
document design. For me, at least, PageMaker was easier to learn and I
am definitely more at ease in it than any other DTP program I've looked at.
