Impression was a godlike program in its day. In fact, bar a few high-end features here and there, the Archimedes made the Macs of the day look stone-age, thanks to the RISC OS GUI and Computer Concepts' incredible work.

However, Impression is just far too old and undeveloped to be a contender. It's 'DTP-cum-Word-processor' concept is/was unique, but as a typographic tool Ovation Pro wins (and could still go much further).

I agree with the other poster about Impression's polish. In their day, the Computer Concepts apps made everything else look like freeware.
