Why exactly? The bug Apple introduced with Leopard was bad, no doubt  
adoubt that, but besides that, what's wrong with Apple's pdf system?  
They don't implement every single feature of PDF, but that's mainly  
because not every single feature is open. There are some parts of PDF  
no one can implement except Adobe.
