Go2PDF

March 22, 2004

Hey now…a free, and limitless, PDF-maker. Sweet! Go2PDF has gotten some good reviews at Picks.net and FindApp.com. This is an excellent shareware product, and gets two tech thumbs up from LiB!

“Go2PDF”

    neat! But surely there’s got to be a catch. (There’s always a catch!)

  2. Librarian in Black Says:

    I thought so too. And then I looooooked, and I loooooooked, and, no catch!

  3. michael Says:

    Ah, the multiple vowel rule comes into play. Any over-emphasis of a word with over three repeating vowels must therefore be true. *sudden realisation at how stupid the previous sentence is* but overriding need to amuse takes hold..

    ..I’m guessing that Adobe have allowed Go2PDF because the coding is not robust enough for general corporate purchase? I mean, you can’t compete with ‘free’ – can you?

  4. Librarian In Black Says:

    Well, if you want to call this a catch (and some folks are telling me they would), than it’s a catch. You do see a teensy one-line message at the bottom of each page urging you to buy the full-scale product, Virtual PDF Printer. It’s very, very tiny. Maybe that’s why Adobe doesn’t give the proverbial crap. Theirs doesn’t have advertising, and companies wouldn’t want some other company’s advertising at the bottom of their PDF. For personal use, I think it’s just fine and dandy.
