EU: No Complaint from Adobe against Microsoft
BRUSSELS, June 22 - The European Commission said on Thursday it had received no complaint from Adobe Systems against Microsoft over the treatment of PDF
documents in the US software giant's forthcoming Windows Vista operating system.

Spokesman Jonathan Todd said EU Competition Commissioner Neelie Kroes had expressed concerns about the way pdf-type documents would be dealt with in Vista in a letter to Microsoft in March. The EU regulator remained in touch with Microsoft on the issue, he said.

"We have not however received any complaint from Adobe," he added. Microsoft's negotiations to use Adobe technology in its new Office business software broke down two weeks ago and Adobe threatened legal action, a lawyer for Microsoft has said.
