Ford: From the Global Graphics perspective, we see segments and markets where both these formats are going to be very important and where they have specific strengths either in the format itself or in the platform that supports that format.

There are things that Metro will provide say a corporate user or environment, for example, and there are a number of things that the whole of the Metro initiative -- not just the format, but the bits that go with it -- will provide that PDF doesn't and will solve problems that PDF doesn't solve. And there are things that PDF provides that Metro won't."
