DELETED: Adobe Reader

I have decided I don' have time for the drama Adobe Reader adds to my life.

That, and the incessant reboots the weekly patches require, if they succeed at all. I can live without it, thank you.

I am voting with my feet on this issue.

I have decided to go minimalist and rely on evince for all my PDF needs. The Windows version is Spartan, but I really don't care. At most all I do with PDFs is print them or copy & paste to something else. Evince does both those tasks well enough.

Sure, evince has had its share of problems in the past, but I don't care. If I could live my life completely Adobe-free I would be a happy man. But then there's... ugh... Flash.
