Free PDF Makers (Updated for PDF Merging)

At least once a year, someone asks this question:
Do we have a program with which I can convert a doc into a pdf?
My answer is short:
  1. There are several PDF creators. You can download and install them; they include the following:

    - PDFCreator - http://www.pdfforge.org/
    - PrimoPDF - http://www.primopdf.com/download.aspx

    And, you can always use the web-based conversion tool, http://www.zamzar.com
  2. Another solution is to use OpenOffice and export to PDF with its built-in tool.
There are many PDF related tools and solutions.You may also want to read this blog post by friend, Wes Fryer on merging PDFs...since Wes doesn't discuss PDF merging with GNU/Linux operating systems--although PDFSAM which he suggests is cross-platform--consider the following solutions for GNU/Linux based operating systems:
  • joinpdf
  • pdfmeld
Read about both of those here.
