If you're sick of Ad*be P.D.F. bloatware/spyware:

Hi all,

I hope the following will be useful to folks. I have already posted this info on the OTHER forum.

I have had a gut full of both free & Pro, bug/spyware ridden Ad*be P.D.F writer/reader versions & have been looking for alternatives. For those with similar concerns this is what I have found:

Please note: I have just found this info & from what I have read of it, most of it seems promising, however I have not yet installed or tested any of these packages. For what it's worth, I will be trying Foxit first.

I have used Foxit for a few years, very good. The ability to modify a document is a great feature.

I'm also a FoxIt user, and I can attest to its speed in launching and opening documents. Really snappy!
