I use this under XP, it is 10x faster then adobe. Opens up in less then 2 secs, will give it a shot in Linux as well.

It was nice for a moment until I messed up Wine. Now I can't open it. LOL.

Cinematography you can use the Adobe Reader or KPDF. Adobe Reader is available from the Adobe website, to install it, its a matter of doing as root,
Code:
#rpm -Uvh AdobeReader_enu-7.0.0-2.i386.rpm

Wow! They have a .rpm installer for AdobeReader?! :shock: Excellent! Thanks a lot for the heads up, Reddazz.

Quite a few commercial companies are now providing software for Linux which is a good thing.

A VERY good thing. I may finally be able to stay with Linux this time. This is my 5th time switching.
