Microsoft after the Adobe market next?

It looks like Microsoft is going to try to take some of the market away from Adobe with a .pdf competitor called Microsoft Metro.

Info about Metro on MS site.

Metro is the codename for the set of conventions for the use of XML and other widely available technologies to describe the content and appearance of paginated documents.

Kind of funny that you can also find info on their site about Lotus Metro with MS-DOS 5.0.

Lotus Metro is a memory-resident desktop management DOS application that allows you to access pop-up desktop accessories such as a calendar, calculator, clock, and so on. Lotus Metro also contains a full-featured keyboard macros program.
