The other day I posted a response regarding online publishing tools in
which I touted Tumbleweed Software's Envoy over Adobe Acrobat.

I am chagrined to have to report that Tumbleweed has (unfortunately)
given up on Envoy and adopted Acrobat to use with their new Posta secure
e-mail delivery system. I don't know why they made this decision, except
that they do admit that Acrobat's PDF is the industry standard.

I also have thought for some time that Tumbleweed either didn't have the
$$$ or the marketing savvy (or both) to fight Adobe in the marketplace.
My guess is that they realized they couldn't win the electronic
publishing battle with Adobe, so they gave up on Envoy, sold the core
technology to Novell, and concentrated their resources on developing
Posta (which automatically converts trasmitted files to Acrobat PDF).

Sorry if I caused any confusion out there in TW land.
