Here's an ITWire article
on the strange removal of PDF support from Microsoft's Office product. "Adobe has reportedly demanded that Microsoft charge users for the PDF facility in Office 2007. Microsoft has refused and intends to offer the PDF facility as a separate free download. Meanwhile the word on the street is that Adobe is preparing to mount an antitrust case against Microsoft in Europe, where the software giant is unpopular with regulators. The whole episode appears to border on the ludicrous, given that Microsoft Office is compatible with the open source look-alike Open Office.org 2.0, which enables documents to be saved as PDF files.
" That which hits Office today may hit OpenOffice.org tomorrow.
