Topic: I hate to feel like an after-thought

So here I am at the PDF Conference. And I have sat in on several
sessions from Adobe people showing the dog-and-pony shows of
Acrobat 6.

ADOBE REP: Hey, look at the way Acrobat takes the custom
transitions of bullet points in Power Point and converts them into PDF
transitions.

ME: Can you do that on a Mac?

ADOBE REP: Uhhhh, no.

(LATER)

ADOBE REP: Hey, look how you can roundtrip comments from
Acrobat to Word. And all the text and strike-throughs show up.

ME: Can you do that on a Mac?

ADOBE REP: Uhhhh, no.

(LATER)

ADOBE REP: Hey, look how you can automatically make and e-mail a
special FDF-wrapped PDF to others for review and comment.

ME: Can you do that on a. . . never mind.

I didn't mind some of the differences between Windows and Mac, but
it feels like the difference between the platforms is getting bigger, not
less.

And I know that Adobe would never release a version of InDesign,
Photoshop, or Illustrator that had such a huge set of features on
Windows but not on the Mac.
