I didn't get the impression they thought I was taking nonsense, but I appreciate the vigorous defence.

I do think there was a time when PDF was synonymous with Acrobat...I think that time has long passed.

I don't think that's happened yet with Word files. Perhaps if Openoffice is adopted more widely one day we'll refer to them as word processing documents, but for now there's a pretty close correlation.

I haven't researched that, mind you. A gut feeling.
