Sorry MS, I will not be spending the EoY money I have been authorized to spend on this over priced package. We only bought the 2008 version 2 years ago for $100/ea because it was so cheap. We could still get by with Office X if we had to. An update to iWork will get our $$$.

Extensis still sells Portfolio 8.5. It costs $199

I was delaying our purchases of Office 2011 because of the cost, but I may take the hit if there's a big discount on the Home & Business edition.
leicaman, Microsoft bought iView Media and changed its name to Microsoft Expression Media before selling it to PhaseOne. Expression Media is great software and handles EPS files much better than Portfolio. Portfolio standalone is still my primary digital asset management software, though, just because so many of my catalogs were made with it.
I believe Portfolio standalone is still under active development (v. 8.5.5 shipped earlier this year), though the uber-expensive workgroup version looks as if it receives a lot more attention.
