Co-founder of Adobe who helped develop PDF passes away at 81

Charles “Chuck” Geschke, the co-founder of Adobe who helped develop the PDF format, passed away at the age of 81.

His legacy is considerable, especially when you consider these estimates:

* Over 2.5 TRILLION PDF documents are created each year

* More than 50% of files stored in the cloud are PDF files

* 60% of non-image attachments in Outlook are PDF files

Our condolences to this truly remarkable pioneer of the desktop publishing industry. Rest in peace.
