Pretty Darn Frustrating (PDF) news

As if I didn't dislike PDFs enough... there's this little note - - about how Adobe fought Microsoft to keep them from offering a "Save As PDF" option in their Office 2007 suite.

If I recall correctly, Adobe has always tried to paint them as some sort of open format, to which I say - C'mon - they've always been proprietary! [curmudgeonly note: not to mention a real pain - slow loading and - depending on the version they were built in and the version of Adobe Acrobat Reader you have on your machine - you can end up with incompatibilities and endless prompts to upgrade your Acrobat to 7, even when you've already done it... not that I'm speaking from experience...]
