    OH MY GOD, NOW WE'RE SCREWED!!!!

    Goodbye Macintosh, it's been fun but you just don't get it anymore. I only want pdf support in my office apps, not the convenience of system-wide pdf creation.

    Man, imagine when they port this over to Mac, I can almost guarantee they will leave the pdf creation in and then we'll have two ways of making pdfs.

    Try this little freeware app: Combine PDFs. I've been using it for a while to join PDFs, and it works great. For editing PDFs, I think your only option is Acrobat Pro at the moment.

    As for PDF support in Office, it will be really nice for Windows users. Certainly not a new idea or anything. In fact, IMO, it's long overdue.

    Well, they are practically a new company according to this article. Imagine, they are able to do further developing on their software now. Who should've thought that.
