The big question is if we'll have any customers still using QuarkXPress to care if takes that long... which is a shame, really (I still feel this industry is better served if Quark is around to push Adobe, and vice versa, but I'm getting off-topic here)...

Until software developers (Adobe, Quark) adopt Goe natively into their programs, designers will be using the myPantone Palette dedicated software. I need to do more research but has Pantone already provided a Goe to CMYK conversion formula?

Actually, you can use it today. The Goe spot color libraries are already in Quark 7.31.

The question was asked of Dov Isaacs at the Adobe Q&A in Vegas - If and when will Adobe support the Goe color library? He said that Adobe was open to providing support to any color libraries. They always have. Pantone seems to be balking.

A couple months earlier, I asked an Adobe Trainer, Terry White in a public forum recently about it and he said basically the same thing.

Seems fishy to me. Why do we need another color system? It's good for Pantone. Why is Quark jumping on it? Are they trying to leverage Goe support against InDesign? That's pretty feeble. I think printers have better things to spend their money on rather than adding/replacing all their swatch books.

Who benefits?
