Default Any good reccomendations of a good pdf maker?

I need a pdf maker that can create pdfs from various documents. I already searched on Google for some pdf making software, but the free alternatives that I've found have some limitations ( like watermark or advertising ) and the paid ones were too complicated to use, or had some annoyances. I can use a good advice.

Please help!

Thank you for your suggestions! The best seem to be PDF Writer Pro ( ) , I will also compare a few other, and then make a decision of which to buy!

Openoffice has the ability to export two pdf, it is a good document editor, similar to Microsoft word

Try PrimoPDF. It's free, and there are no watermarks. When it is installed, you just create your document in any program you want. Then when you are finished, go to File -> Print just like you are printing your document. Then instead of sending it to your printer, you send it to PrimoPDF which makes it into a pdf file. So you can make a pdf out of anything that has a print function.
