Bit of strange logic there ... Microsoft has nothing to do with PDF format, which was created by Adobe.

Macs can read all unencrypted PDF files by default, so I'm guessing there's some kind of user error going on here unless you are receiving certain kinds of very high-end or encrypted PDFs. Macs can also create PDFs by default, no extra software needed for garden-variety PDFs.

If you can, I'd return the MS Office if you only bought it to read PDFs. If you are getting some sort of "special format" PDFs, then Adobe's free Reader app will handle them.
