I don't think this is really accurate. Interleaf is a much larger, and
more capable tool than Frame and, fittingly, it costs a lot more. I'm
going to get sniped at for saying this, but the average Joe/Jane in
the street doesn't need this thing to pop out a hundred and twenty
pager every so often.

Those of us that need and use all of the advanced features on a
regular basis are pretty glad it's around. I wouldn't want to do
the job I'm doing with anything less.
