OSX has native support for PDF and can render or export to PDF with a few
lines of code. On other platforms you would need to license a SDK..but when
you need it you need it. We may support displaying PDFs in the future or
printing to PDF on OSX.
You can view PDFs in Windows as well using the acrobat COM component or the
altuit web browser DLL.
