Stupid Adobe

I was wondering why my internet was so slow - Adobe Reader was updating itself. Do you think Adobe Reader needs 1GB worth of updates? ? Anyone know a good PDF reader that isn't made by Adobe?

Yes. Foxit Reader (free version) is small and fast. Sumatra (also free) is even smaller and is the best for Windows 2000 but has a few less features.

Hows it stupid Adobe, when you can choose if it updates or not?

Its stupid because its a crap piece of software that is very bloated. Other programs do excatly the same thing and use stuff all system resources, less hdd space and do the same job. So in comparison adobe reader is shit.

Welcome to Adobe products, they are all heavy. On another note your reply to my comment has nothing to do with my comment.

geek_malachiman, Jan 19, 4:31 pm

errrr no shit sherlock they are heavy! The stupid part is that(bloated and heavy) read and perhaps you will understand it then. Please learn to read.

geek_johnf_456, Jan 19, 4:59 pm

+1 Thanks for the exact size info.

geek_johnf_456, Jan 19, 5:00 pm

Its also stupid because most of the adobe reader updates are unnecessary, as well as the software (adobe)been a bloated piece of crap software. Dont see foxit or sumatra etc having huge updates like that.

geek_johnf_456, Jan 19, 5:03 pm

lol dude, maybe you should re-read what my comment was in context too.

geek_malachiman, Jan 19, 5:28 pm

Not discussing the size of the update! !

geek_malachiman, Jan 19, 5:30 pm
