Features, Office According to BetaNews, Microsoft has announced that they will support OpenDocument (ODF) and PDF in Office 2007 SP2. This comes as a major victory not only for OpenOffice.org and its offshoots, but also for open source in general. Microsoft is planning on making Office 2007 SP2 available in the first half of 2009.

Weird, MS originally wanted to include Save to PDF in Office 2007. In fact, it shipped as part of Office 2007 Beta 2.

I can personally guarantee it definitely included export to PDF. The above docs were both created with Office 12 beta.

They removed it from the default install but it's still available to download as an addon.
