"Microsoft se propone derrocar a PDF con nuevo formato" a: (diario TI).
(..) El núcleo de Metro es el formato Metro Reach, basado en XML, que según Microsoft puede ser usado con todos los programas y en todas las plataformas. (..)

Metro incluirá una herramienta ´Reader´ que permitirá visualizar y escribir archivos. De igual modo, se incluirá un plug-in que permitirá crear documentos Metro desde todos los programas Windows, como asimismo un conector que acelerará el proceso de impresión.

Metro estará estrechamente integrado con el sistema operativo Windows cuando Longhorn sea lanzado el próximo año. (..)

"It sure sounds like it's meant as a PDF killer to me" said (..) an analyst (..) who was at this week's WinHEC conference. But Microsoft officials, predictably, denied that the company is gunning for Adobe with Metro.

"One aspect of what we're addressing with Metro is fixed document format, which happens to be tied into (Longhorn's presentation subystem) Avalon and XAML (Avalon's XML Applied Markup Language)," said Microsoft (..). With its huge installed base, "PDF is not going away," (..). "We're solving a much narrower set of challenges for IHVs (independent hardware vendors) and ISVs (independent software vendors)."

Microsoft officials told WinHEC attendees that Metro is a "new fixed document format built on top of XML" that Microsoft will make available royalty-free. Microsoft is releasing publicly the specification for Metro (..).

(..) "As a Page Description Language (PDL), 'Metro' will offer significantly improved screen-to-print fidelity (..)

(..) printers with Metro "interpreters" and/or those which are Metro-enabled will be able to best print Metro-based documents and photos.

(..) Metro refers not just to a document format, but also the Longhorn print path. (..)



Un altre punt de vista: Microsoft's Metro May Not Kill Adobe PDF After All.
Microsoft's demo at WinHEC for Longhorn's printing and document architecture, "Metro," looks promising. But getting software and hardware vendors to join the party may be tough.
