When I read that, my first reaction was, "That can't be right." But, by golly, it is. For $500, you can still buy PageMaker 7:

I believe that release is 8 or 9 years old. Heck, the FAQ announcing the end of life for PM and pushing users to switch to ID was copyrighted in 2005:

What a slow, agonizing death. I think it's time for somebody to bury the thing and say a few words. :-)
