Yes, but as a user of electronic documentation, I hate PDF formatted documents. They have the usage restrictions of paper manuals, and are difficult to read on-screen because of their print-oriented output.

Last spring, we at OpenConnect Systems were about to spend a bundle to
place our documents on CD-ROM. At the 1995 STC Annual Conference, I
attended sessions on CD-ROM and the WWW. After I returned with new
information just learned, we discussed the entire issue and decided to
convert our documents to PDF files using Acrobat and to distribute them to
our customers using free Acrobat Readers via the WWW. We are Beta Testing
the system using our internal staff and our field offices. If you have
not considered Acrobat, go to for information.
