KOffice (linux only) allows the import and editing of PDF files with varying
degrees of success depending on the complexity. If you use 1.5, you can
import, then save to odt, and load it into OpenOffice (Windows or Linux).

You will have to do additional work. You can't load and save in PDF only and
expect it to work, but KOffice gets around the boring bit (the typing).
