Before the Macromedia-Abode takeover, that used to Acrobat Reader that was
neglected. As far as I know, Acrobat Reader 6 never existed for Linux and
version 5 for Linux had a severe flaw, which was discovered shortly after
AR7 had come out. Moreover, version 5 fort Linux was half-cooked. It had
these ugly Motif dialogues. Shame on Adobe, but they have an opportunity to
make up... same with MATLAB, by the way (one of my recurring rants)...
