Certain types of news makes me thinking if the customer's satisfaction counts something again or the world of software is centered only around the business.
The upcoming Office 2007 release was announced with an interesting feature that all of us have requested from years: native support for PDF documents.
The beta releases we've see in thee period have this feature supported natively, but now seems that there's another surprise on the horizon: Adobe seems not agree with the native "save to pdf" functionalities on Office 2007 and they're trying to push Microsoft to take it out (and to charge customers with extra costs).
Why this? Adobe is worried to lose market? I really can't understand why starting wars on these fields... it's incredible!
I hope Adobe will review their decision soon because if pdf support will be embedded into Office 2007, everyone will be a winner (Microsoft will have a new service and Adobe will increase their market).
P.S. instead to be warned of this pdf support on Office 2007, Adobe should be worried on how its product are becoming every day less performant (one of all, Adobe Reader... a giant and resource-consuming program only to read a pdf file! :;) ).
