  1. PDF files look exactly like original documents and preserve source file information. PDF lets you capture and view robust information—from any application, on any computer system—and share it with anyone around the world. Individuals, businesses, and government agencies everywhere rely on PDF. I like your choice, kinda follow that one, I hope you don’t mind.
