Acrobat for Linux-based PDA

I've been thinking about purchasing the Sharp Zaurus SL-760, a Linux-based PDA, for the sole purpose of using electronic (fill-in) forms I have since created in Adobe Acrobat on my PC. While there appear to be PDF Readers for Linux-based PDA's, I really need something more like Acrobat or Acrobat for Linux that will allow me to deal with the dynamic content of a PDF form on a Linux-based PDA. Unfortunately, I've been unable to resolve this problem and, quite frankly, find it hard to believe that Adobe hasn't bothered to address this matter. Since I'm also really tired of MS Windows (to be honest, I really hate MS Windows and refuse to use any MS Platform based PDA to resolve this problem), this is my first attempt in an effort to completely rid myself of this miserable OS. All said, any comments or suggestions regarding the resolve to this dilemma are appreciated.

If you want Acrobat on a hand-held all you will find is Reader or equivalent.

I wanted to do this years ago with Psion machines,

As far as I am aware to date there ain't anything available, and don't hold your breath for Adobe to do anything. Don't forget the market that shares of MS and Adobe are interwined and optimised for Windows.......

Unfortunately I don't have a solution. Anyone got one?
