Beginners Guide for Linux

Yesterday (12-Aug-2007) I read series of articles by Kim Brebach:

13 reasons why Linux won't make it to a desktop near you

Acrobat Reader is really great free program, but with every new release from Adobe it becomes more big (disk size), slow and really hungry for system resources. The main reason for that is adding new features. The problem is that most of user never uses them. As result many programmers start writing on PDF viewers. Some of them are really great, but the main problem with all of them is that they need time to be updated after each new release from Adobe. I found out that many time I can't open some PDFs with 3-td party viewers.
