Not really. The new owners have pretty much beaten it into the ground.
They won't sell it to you. They won't support it.

Yes. The Usenet news group, comp.text.interleaf

And you won't. When did you ever find a clear statement about Interleaf
from the people who sold it (which, as I noted above, they don't do
anymore)? Just because it is the best publishing program ever produced
for the desktop doesn't mean anyone ever understood how to market it.

There is an Interleaf 7 for Windows and something called QuickSilver, I
think (although they might be the same thing). The versions after 5.4.1
for DOS, however, traded off reduced functionality for a more
Windows-compliant interface. 5.4.1 is still the gold standard for
complex documents. The later versions have some features that make them
better in some circumstances, though. Depends what you're trying to do.
