The next thing you know... they are trying to ban OpenOffice, because it too allows people to export to PDF. That's probably the main reason that Microsoft put it in there in the first place, because they don't want to stay a step behind Open Office.
The thing that Adobe has to realize is that they can fight for all the rights they want but the problem is that, companies have to stay competitive and in order to do that only collaboration can help. What I'm trying to say is, instead of ordering Microsoft to remove the feature, they should try to work with them to add-in an optional element which incorporates something like Flash paper when you are installing it. But for some reason I don't think that things like that are going to happening soon... because of the greed factor may be?
