Submission + - Adobe takes aim at Google with Acrobat .com->

CWmike writes: "Adobe Acrobat software is getting a Web 2.0 makeover, as the graphics software maker prepares to challenge Microsoft and Google in the online office arena. On Monday, Adobe is launching a public beta of an upcoming hosted collaboration service called Acrobat.com. Components include a Web-based word processor named Buzzword, which Adobe acquired last fall; the company claims that it produces more-polished-looking documents than other online word processors, such as Google Docs. One take on if it has a fighting chance: Enabling PDFs to become .zip-like file containers is "nice in certain work situations," said Guy Creese, an analyst at Burton Group in Midvale, Utah. "But it sort of begs the question: Is helping people continue to send stuff around by e-mail the best way to do things when you can use wikis or SharePoint and do it better? I'm not convinced this will have a great uptake in the market.""
