Adobe to Microsoft: .pdFU

Good Morning Silicon Valley: Adobe to Microsoft: .pdFU.

I would do the same thing if I was Adobe… PDF is popular enough, it would help no further by allowing Office 2007 to output in its format. On the contrary, PDF format should be a powerful weapon for Adobe to extend her business and to introduce other charged lucrative services.

Giving Microsoft the full power to save as PDF sounds like surrendering the only weapon to a giant, who may eventually get even stronger to acquire Adobe herself. Can it ever happen? Who knows?
