Odd story today in the Wall Street Journal about Microsoft and Adobe haggling over the “save to PDF” feature in Office 2007. If you’d like to read more about how Microsoft is only trying to add a neat feature that’s already available on the Mac, check out this press release from last October.
It’s not surprising that Microsoft and Adobe are fighting, and the PDF feature in Office is probably just the tip of the iceberg. The story didn’t mention that Microsoft is going after Adobe with a new PDF-killer document format and Web development tools targeting Adobe products like Flash.
Is everybody negotiating through the press nowadays?
