Default ID to XPress 7 converter

Markzware has released ID2Q, a utility for converting ID 1.5–CS2 files to QuarkXPress 6 or 7 format.

All elements of the InDesign document, including object positions, colors, text, text attributes, images, etc. are converted. ID2Q7 also converts files between platforms, converting Windows InDesign files to Mac QuarkXPress.

There are limitations in the conversion, in part because the two programs have different views of page makeup and typography, but it should save a lot of time compared to reconsructing the XPress file from scratch.

Supports Mac XPress 6 on Intel or earlier systems; and version 7 on non-Intel systems only. Universal binary for Mac and Windows XP and higher version due soon. List: $199 / €$199 / £139.

Now what I am curious about: How much demand is there for a tool like this? And why?
