Decisions Decisions

Since I have a caller determined to NOT let me sleep tonight, I thought I would post a question. I'm too lazy to make it into a poll.

If you could have either Adobe InDesign or Pagemaker, which would you pick? I'm leaning toward InDesign right now (the package is $100 cheaper). I received this email today about academic discounts for Adobe stuff and I think I'm going to jump. I can get one package (the design collection?) which has Acrobat, Illustrator, Photoshop, and InDesign for $380, or the other one (the publishing collection?) which just substitutes Pagemaker for InDesign for $480. I read some stuff which led me to believe that Pagemaker may be easier to use, but InDesign is more "artsy". I would probably use it for flyers and stuff for work (visually intensive pieces), and would like to create scrapbook pages that look awesome using Photoshop and the layout program yet to be determined at home.

So, any advice? Do any of you use either program? If I get it (which is almost a definite right now), I really want to get the RAW conversion tool for photoshop. Has anyone used it? It seems really powerful, but is kind of confusing.

    Who's That Girl. How did I love this movie? I remember watching it 6 times when we rented it, but couldn't watch 15 minutes of it a few years ago.

    The movie of The Dark is Rising still gives me nightmares. Not because it was powerful, but because it was the worst reinterpretation of a book…
