Glad I don't need to use Adobe Reader 9

I’ve been installing Adobe Reader 8.1.2 for our computers at work. Then, I found out there was a new version: Adobe Reader 9.

No thanks. If there’s no security holes, stick to the earlier version because it won’t:

  • Shove Adobe Air down your throat. (No way to uncheck this.)
  • Add to your computer, but not provide a way to cleanly uninstall it.
  • Weigh over 200MB after its finished installing (Still, Adobe Reader 8.1.2 takes 170MB of space. Ack.)

Head over to microBlog’s sarcastic post, “Thank you, Adobe Reader 9!” Then, download and use Foxit PDF or Sumatra PDF. They’re both free.
