Over on this site's Facebook page, a reader asked wrote about "a great desktop package call Ventura. It was the king of long documents..." My response?
"Back when I was first considering desktop publishing software I looked at Ventura Publisher but then went in another direction. It became Corel Ventura at some point. And it's been stuck there at version 10 since 2002. Up until the last couple of years I would hear from dedicated Ventura users but not much at all anymore. I honestly don't know how many folks are really still using it these days. Any Ventura users reading this? Is it dead or is a resurrection still possible?"
So, is anyone still using Corel Ventura? I still list it on my big list of desktop publishing software. Corel still sells it. Is anyone buying? Post in the comments if you or your company still uses Corel Ventura or if you were using it until recently. How do you use it? If you stopped, why and what did you switch to? Is Corel planning to ever do anything with this software (like, maybe, update it?)
