    maybe it's just that my macbook is so much faster than my desktop, but adobe reader on a windows machine blows

    it takes like 40 seconds to initially open and occasionally freezes if i attempt to open a pdf within firefox

    viewing a pdf with preview on a mac :bowdown:

    that is all

    I hate Adobe reader! Just wait till Leopard and Quick View, it is instant viewing of PDF and other files, I love it.

    I usually avoid Adobe Reader like the plague.

    sorry to partially hijack the thread, but does anyone have a 10.0 or 10.1 install cd?

    the preview on that lets you work around stuff that's been locked in newer versions.

    i.e. if a pdf is locked form printing now, the preview from back then was so basic it ignored that.
