I've always found RISC OS ideal for design and publishing projects. Unfortunately, my printers disagree and insist that I provide them with PDFs to a specific specification. This tends to mean that RISC OS design projects end up being converted to Postscript on RISC OS, then PDF'd on a Mac; before being checked and occasionally relaid in InDesign for generating yet again as a PDF with accurate colour settings. [particularly applicable for colour work].

What I would add though is that there are still certain elements of guesswork with the 'professional' systems... i'm waiting with baited breath for 10,000 copies of a magazine laid out on a Mac to return at the end of next week.

*fingers crossed it comes out right*

The mainly Ovation Pro-produced Education Essentials came out perfectly.
