Topic: Why Adobe Acrobat 6.0 Professional?
Conf: (P-PDF) Acrobat 6.0, Msg: 102079

I have a question. Why should one spend time developing ineractive forms using Adobe Acrobat 6.0 Professional, when the scripts are not going to function in Reader 6.0? I developed a Process Manual(first in a series of 50+). Within the manual there is a single page form for the end-user to fill out should the manual require any maintenance. The submit button (used to email the form to me) works fine in Professional but doesn't do squat in Reader. What sense does it make to produce a product where you can do all these wonderful things, but in the end, they won't be usable by your target audience (well short of purchasing licenses for the 800 plus associates here and giving them full access to modify my document)?

Why eBooks and mobile devices don't (yet) pose an existential threat to the PDF

Continuous upheaval is what makes watching the technology industry so exciting. David vs. Goliath battles are waged every day, with startups often winning against much larger businesses. For years and years, many have predicted the decline of the PDF given its age and perceived disadvantages. Today, with the PDF losing ground in emerging areas like mobile and eBooks, the calls for its ultimate demise are growing louder.
