A quick heads-up for all you budding, amateur desktop-publishers out there. Computer Shopper magazine is giving away QuarkXPress 5.01 free with its January 2007 issue (on sale now).

Amazon are currently selling QuarkXPress 5 (Windows) for between £399 – £499.95, Computer Shopper claims that it is worth £880. You can get it for £3.50, a saving of £876.50!

While it’s not the latest version of XPress (which is now at version 7) version 5 (released in 2002) is still a very usable and powerful DTP application that has been an industry standard for many years. (Read more about QuarkXPress at Wikipedia.)

Prior to installing XPress you are required to register online with Quark, which for me was a quick and pain-free process. A few minutes later my validation code landed safely in my e-mail inbox. You have until sometime in January 2007 to register, so don’t dilly dally.
