PDF is not proprietary to Adobe. There are a number of other vendors who have products that produce Adobe PDF compatable files (adobe reader will read them). Do a search for "pdf -adobe" and you will find several. I cannot recommend any because I do use Acrobat and Adobe Capture which allows you to scan documents and convert to PDF, both of these are expensive to get started with and Capture is not the greatest product (in my opinion).
