> What's your beef with PDF?

Poorly legible on-screen, in practice impossible to adjust typesizes,
etc.  Also usually bloated in relation to the amount of text present.

PDF is a fine way to deliver printables that are intended to go directly
onto paper with the exact original appearance.  For all _other_ documents,
one is lead to suspect that the author isn't reviewing on-screen what he
wrote, or he'd realise just how annoying the format can be.

You appear to have not only missed the point, but also the county in
which that point resides.
