    I just use sumatra PDF. I generally have a dislike of PDFs as well.

    No software is perfect, generally the more popular it is the more errors will be found. I've no doubt Adobe's suits are any worse than any other mainstream software package.

    I have been using Foxit PDF Reader since it first became available and find it much more responsive than the bloated Adobe version.

    You are so very wrong. If you have ever tried to work with Adobe's output PostScript that they shove to the poor print drivers you would be amazed how the company which invented the language can completely ignore every good coding practice they themselves have outlined.

    That apart form Reader being a bloated bug-ridden rootkit of course.

    Security due to online involvement is hot topic news today what with Intel buying McAfee for £5billion. They all need to keep on their toes to be sure their clients stay with them.

    No offense, but if a simple patch is enough to break your security / admin software, maybe... just maybe, you should be running a better security / admin software package? This isn't like trying to make a Mac play nice on an otherwise all Windows network or something. I mean it's not like you don't know that things will update, and not all software developers release patches in cycles, some just release as needed.

    I mean I've obviously never been an admin but it just seems silly to me.
