Topic: Convert PDF file to Word Doc

I would like to find a product that can convert PDF files to Word Docs. Many times I scan in a form that needs to be filled in. I would like to be able to scan - create the PDF file using Adobe 6 (which I can do) and then open it in Word to be able to fill in the form. I have tried to fill out the form in Adobe by creating text boxes - but I find this cumbersome. I have found 2 products ScanSoft PDF converter and Solid PDF Converter - any feedback on these products would help. Solid PDF has a trail period. ScanSoft does not. I tried Solid and it works nicely. Are there other products that work better? Or is there a better way to fill in forms?

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.
