    There are two major products that come out of Berkeley: LSD and UNIX. We don't believe this to be a coincidence.

    It's nice to see Adobe re-discovering the linux world. It's way past time for an update to the old 5.0 reader we've been stuck with; the new Reader supports all the newer features and uses native widget sets (so it's not as ugly as 5.0 ). Of course, it's frigging huge, about 40Mb, but then you can't have everything...

    And I might add that it looks awesome. The old Reader (v5.0) was clunky and out of date, based on what must have been like Redhat 6.0 or maybe 7.0. The new one is smooth and, for the most part, looks and interacts more like a modern Linux system.

    Yeah, I always hated the fact that here I had a nice, polished desktop and Reader sported an ancient-looking motif interface. By the way, 7.0 also supports font anti-aliasing, so the docs won't look as chunky as they used to.

    one of the most exciting things about Fedora Linux to me was the fact that here was an alternative to adobe reader. I hate that program. Its too big, and too slow! The mac os x viewer is nice. I whish i could find a alternative pdf viewer for pc......

    Have too say, its a great improvement from acroread5... I tested acroread5, and it was so ugly and such a shame for my computer, so I instantly removed it...

    By the way, does anybody know if netscape is letting out v8.0 for linux? I prefere firefox, but it would be kinda cool to test out at least...
