. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum

Why Adobe, Why? [PDF readers]
Ok, I'm not even sure anymore if I'm posting here to whine, ask for help, or if I just want to be around others who share my misery, but Adobe has managed to push me over the edge.
Sure, I didn't like the sieve that is Flash, but at least it has the excuse of being designed as a plug-in for netscape navigator in a time where these things where not well understood and it's mostly a dying technology anyway.
But I'm mostly here to bitch about Adobe acrobat, and mostly for a frivolous reason at that.
Adobe Acrobat is using 1.24gb of SSD HD space, and that's not even counting the amount of space the program is actually taking up.
Yes, in their infinite wisdom, they've decided to put every installer for both x86 and ARM processors in my /programdata directory, you know, in case I move this HD onto an ARM computer and want to re-install version 8 through 10 of Acrobat (9.63 is especially useful to keep around!). This'll save me the inconvenience of re downloading it from their website (where it's a 10mb download or so).
It's not even that I'm opposed to programs using space, I mean, that's what it's there for, but this? Who thought this could ever be a good idea?
In closing, I guess I'm looking for a new PDF reader that's of high-quality, and yes, just to piss Adobe off a bit, I'm willing to pay for one.
