FrameMaker is still available for Windows and Solaris platforms. They
discontinued it only for the Mac. (Did they ever have an OSX version?)

PageMaker is also still available (Mac and Windows, no Solaris), but
Adobe is heavily promoting PageMaker users to upgrade to InDesign. I
wouldn't be surprised if PageMaker were retired completely within a
year or two.

Adobe reps have told me their full development efforts in this arena
are behind InDesign.
