    I agree, it will make things easier without having to install additional applications. Microsoft shouldn't stop there though... any common file type should be 'readable', but if you want to amend a document, then you need to buy and/or install the full product. Microsoft should add a Word and Excel viewer by default.

    But they they will end up back in court from Adobe and all the other firms who are "going out of business" because MS put free tools on to replace, oh wait, the free tools they provided anyway......

    I agree though, be great to have PDF reader straight out of the box

    I can't see why Adobe would go out of business. Read only tools should be provided in any OS by default, however if you want to create PDFs then you can buy their full Adobe Acrobat product for example. Adobe doesn't make money from Adobe Reader, but in theory they could license the required reader components to Microsoft.

    Most people do not understand or care about file extensions, they just expect it to work.

    Never!!!

    We do use CS3 though and I believe we have a site license, very good software and is being used more and more.... it is easy to tell when their Home drives are filling up with "Photography/Exam/Art etc"..
