    They've had the Save as PDF Add-in available for years (as an option you have to hunt down and install manually). Nice to see it'll soon be part of the default install though.

    I personally don't use Micro$oft Office, but as a Free Software advocate, I find this great news!

    yeah, if this is done correctly, it will give other office suites a much better play ground.
