[Techtalk] Saving in PDF

Does anyone know a word processor that can save in PDF format?

I occurred to me recently that this shouldn't be too difficult (we already 
have open-source converters from Postscript or LaTeX to PDF), and it would 
add significant "coolness" because the plug-in to convert Word to PDF costs 
a considerable chunk of money.

Additionally, it would provide an alternative to Word as a universal medium 
of interchange. I'm thinking of resumes/CVs in particular here. Everyone 
sends resumes in Word format; PDF would be "snazzy" and more open than Word.
