Yikes, the Acrobat update alone weighs in at over 170MB! Hey Adobe, any chance you can un-bloat these apps any time soon??

Oh, Thanks for the update notice though! :)

if you are on a Mac, simply use the free "Preview" application that comes pre-installed and don't bother with Adobe Reader...

If you are on is VERY tiny footprint wise...

Do not want to (or are not permitted to) use or install ANY application on that box you are using at work ?

Browser based PDF viewing comes FREE from Google in their email client (gMail) which has a free viewer or use the Google Chrome browser.

The REASON Adobe reader is so LARGE is because it needs to deal with all sorts of complex documents, so, if anything, it will get BIGGER, not smaller.

I'm in a prepress/production environment, so PitStop is a necessity and therefore the Adobe bloat also. (I do use FoxIt at home on the PeeCee though, it's very zippy.) Just wish Adobe would wise-up & make a more streamlined version for Print Production, strip out all the unnecessary "features" that we never use (3D rendering, seriously??) and keep it from constantly crashing. Ahhhhh, I can dream right?

Prepress PitStop people have pounced on PitStop Extreme --> an Adobe-less, stand-alone PDF Perfecting program.

click here --> to Watch the DEMO MOVIE ! <-- click !

and, well, related to 3D rendering, I would suggest that while few people print in 3D, many many many PDF files are distributed by AutoDesk users that contain 3D and many other things that, while may never be printed, are essential to the digital information that is excahnged - DWF files also find themselves needing to become print ready, so thank the fine folks at Adobe that we can represent them in a way that can be printed without much expertise - there are many many verticals that need "things" to be represented in PDF, and I expect the PDF specifcation will continue to evolve (and get BIGGER, not smaller) - and, it would follow that PDF hndleing things need more code to manae and display that, so do not waste your time worring about memory foot prints - just buy more ram and bigger hard drives to accomedate and be glad you have a job !


Anyway - who knows, maybe Adobe will toss it all and go with the XML version of PDF - Adobe Mars.
