PageMaker evolved into another Adobe program called InDesign. Comes in both
Mac and Win versions.
I recently switched from using Quark on a Mac to InDesign on a Win system
and have been very pleasantly surprised. It works much more intuitively than
PageMaker ever hoped to and has a significant edge over at least the older
versions of Quark. Especially when it comes to buying a copy of one or the
other. If you, or someone in your household is a school district employee,
you can get all the Adobe products at a deep discount. Because my husband is
a teacher, we paid under $400 for a package that included InDesign,
Photoshop, Illustrator, GoLive, & Acrobat Pro.

Pagemaker is dead. Adobe discontinuted it in 2004. The last update was in
2002 or earlier, and it's no longer supported by most print shops. I believe
it doesn¹t run on Mac OSX, and Classic won't be supported forever. I'd shift
away from it or you will run into compatibility problems.
I've just started exploring Scribus http://scribus.net which is a lot like
Quark (the current industry standard). It seems pretty good. There may be
others just as good.
Thanks, Jedd, for the tip about GIMP and Krita. I'll check them out.
