    Question Anyone can please recommend any good pdf writer software products?

    I am looking for an easy way to convert documents ( pictures, data sheets, word, excel ) to pdfs. There are many products around ( lower cost alternative to Adobe Acrobat ) but of what I tried so far each of them have some annoyances.

    OpenOffice can import Microsoft Office documents and export PDF files.

    If you happen to have access to a mac, just hit file>print (or the equiv.) and choose the button "save as .pdf".

    Yeah, anything that runs CUPS can do that.

    If you have Microsoft Office 2007, you can download this addon to convert Office documents to PDF.
