That's curious, considering Framemaker started life as a Unix
program. It was already the preferred GUI page layout program for
Unix when it became one of the stars of the brand-new NeXT. Being
able to write your own PostScript, drop it into Framemaker, and
see it perfectly rendered was mind-blowing....
I've long since lost track of Framemaker, so I have no clue about
what Adobe's been doing with it. I would think you could still get
it for Solaris and Irix, and would be surprised if you couldn't
get it for Mac OS X. But that's all pure speculation, of course.
While all of those are Unices, none, obviously, is OpenBSD. If you
want Framemaker on OpenBSD, you're insane, but the VMware approach
is probably the best one. It wouldn't hurt to try Wine, but I
really wouldn't expect it to work.
