I haven't used NT 4 or seen it actively used for anything other than testing
since 2000. They can be resistant to change all they want. If they want my
money, they'll keep up with me.

Me too, but if they don't fit into my workflow, how does that help me?

This is why building a solid relationship with a vendor is so critical.

I have never had to prepare an image. I have published over 100 books, from
monochrome to full CMYK color.

So might hindering your own workflow's evolution.
