taking on Microsoft in the courts, in an antitrust lawsuit surrounding the ability of Office 2007 to write PDF files. Particularly, Adobe wants Microsoft to turn the PDF writing into a purchaseable module, separate from the Office suit itself. While Microsoft is willing to remove the feature entirely, they are not willing to turn it into a pay item. Unless you use open source software, writing PDFs or using advanced PDF writing features is something you have to buy a professional suite from, such as Acrobat Professional. The PDF format is used widely around the world, and having the ability to create your own with a software suite that's likely to come shipped with a new PC would be appealing to many.
