We need a solution for a server to convert documents to
PNG and PDF formats. The documents supported should be:
.doc, .xls, .ppt, .html, .pdf, common image formats, etc.
The conversion depends on Microsoft office as engine so
for Linux we will have to use a different document display
engines which works with all office versions.
