Adobe FrameMaker 8 ReviewPosted on 2007-10-26 14:24:00 by Thomas De Maesschalck
The cheapest we could find FrameMaker 8 for is £806 for the full version or £270 for the upgrade (from previous versions of FrameMaker, only). In the US, Adobe prices the full version at around $899, so not much over half the UK price. Adobe wouldn't comment on the price difference, but the only reason we can think of for the much higher UK price is because customers are still prepared to buy it for that.
FrameMaker 8 is an excellent document creation tool with some very worthwhile improvements in the latest version, but the retail pricing is outrageous. (Corporate pricing may be better - please let us know). The price must, surely, discourage its wider adoption, which is a great shame.
