What program do you use to open .pdf files?

What program do you use to open .docx files?

Do you get the same message in both cases?

well fedora 14 is 3 and VERY soon to be 4 versions OUT OF DATE

fedora 14 is way past it's end of life

fedora normally uses the DEFAULT "evince" for pdf 's

and a "docx " file might be the NEW Microsoft office format that the OLD AND UNSUPPORTED version of " Go-Office" ( the default in fedora 14) might NOT be able to open

go-office is a fork of the PRE sale of OO to Orcale of SUN's openoffice

Please STAY current and install Fedora 17
