PC Pro magazine (available in the UK) is offering a staggering deal. Get a free (ok, so the magazine costs £3.99) fully working version of QuarkXPress 5 for the PC. It’s on the free disc with the March issue of PC Pro available now. This could prove really useful for journalism students. Quark is currently on version 7, but many local newspapers still use much older editions. It also runs far quicker than InDesign on an old PC.
Terms: You must register your free copy by 23rd March 2007. It’s also offering an upgrade to Quark 7 for £293. That is a major discount on the commercial price of £800. However, students and tutors can get it for around £100 at the Solent Uni Education Store.
