About DWFx

A reader asks about Microsoft’s deal with Autodesk to make DWF a Vista-compatible format. My response:

As I understand it:

* DWF files have to be saved in DWFx format.
* Can be viewed only in XPS documents, Microsoft’s PDF clone.
* Only works on an operating system that most corporations plan to delay implementing by a year or two.
* Is limited to 2D.
* And has to compete with the 3D CAD formats that Microsoft is also supporting in Vista — JT Open, 3DXML, (others?).

By coincidence, Owen Wengerd also reports on the practical details and problems of DWFx at his new blog, otb.manusoft.com/.
