Summary: Adobe Acrobat is one of the most worthwhile investments a computer user can make. Although this is true especially for graphics people, it can be used extensively and well for any individual. Creating files that are small, easily transported over the net or via disk and having the recipient view and print exactly what was created is indispensable.
Pros: PDF format offers a very high level of accuracy, flexibility and mobility
Cons: Does not currently allow user selectable printing from within Acrobat Reader
Summary: I absolutely hate it when I click on a link on any given website, and it's a pdf file, and they don't tell you it's a pdf file. My computer is slow and it just takes forever. Adobe Acrobat in itself is okay though.
Summary: Adobe Acrobat is a original software to create and read the PDF files. It does what it supposes to do, however, there are many alternatives, some of them even free, that do the same, while being almost 10 times lighter and twice faster than Adobe Acrobat.
Summary: Adobe Acrobat is one of the most essential programs available, at least the reader. A full version of Acrobat allows one to print a soft copy of any document in a format that can be opened, read and printed by anyone with Acrobat or Acrobat Reader. The latter is free to download. For example, one can print a WordPerfect document that can be opened, read and printed with the same fonts, graphics, etc without having WordPerfect.
