Note: Photoshop is a great program, but it's severely bloated, along with all the other stuff they produce now.

Then you've got a crap cable connection. It took me less than 1 minute on a 5Mbps cable connection (which is certainly nothing special). Besides, it's not as if you can't do other things on your PC while downloading.

But it wasn’t just a simple, ordinary download. First Adobe told me to download a Firefox plugin. I assumed the plugin would help me read PDFs in my browser. But oh no, this was a special plugin, an Adobe Reader Download Manager (TM) — a plugin specially designed to help Firefox download Adobe’s powerful PDF viewer.
So what? Is taking literally a few seconds to get a plugin really that much of a hassle?

Quote:
After the unpacking, the install process itself took 10 minutes. I could only thank Adobe’s engineers, presuming they were filling up my hard drive with yummy icons, tasty DLLs, and amazing 3D JavaScript add-ons. No matter — the 210 MB it required was there to be used.
What are you using, a Pentium III? I just installed Adobe Reader 9 - it took less than 2 MINUTES. Oh, and you're complaining about 210MB? Give me a break. What do you have, a 40GB HDD? Even if it does take 10 minutes, who cares? You can't find anything better to do than stare at your computer screen and think up a smug, sarcastic blog entry?

Quote:
I was so thankful when it told me I needed to restart my computer
What? I don't know what you're talking about here, no restart was necessary for me.

Quote:
I could finally try out this new software. I was impressed. It started in a minuscule 13 seconds, plus the time it took me to skim their poetic and beneficent license agreement.
Adobe Reader 9 launches in less than 1 second, both from FireFox and my Desktop. You either have a terribly slow and/or old computer, or it's just running poorly because don't know how to optimize it.

Oh, and by the way, I did this is on a 4 year old rig (Athlon XP 2500+/Asus A7N8X-E motherboard/1GB Corsair DDR400 RAM/Radeon 9700Pro GFX card).

Quote:
Ah, the joy of using a new product. Unlike Microsoft products, Adobe’s new, bigger Reader behaves exactly the same as the old one. In fact, it’s so compatible I can’t even tell the difference! Boy, I know good release management when I see it …
Judging by what you've said so far, you actually don't seem to know much.

Quote:
Thank you, Adobe, for version 9 of your free PDF Reader. You even thought to put a nice link to Acrobat.com on my Start Menu!
No, Ben, thank YOU for a completely pointless and misinformed blog entry that was a total waste of internet bandwidth. The largest waste of time here was reading this garbage.

What a tool. It's ironic that all your attempt at sarcasm has done is brought to light your smarmy idiocy.

PS: Adobe Reader 9 is FREE. What do you want for free, your money back?

PPS: That blog entry is not satire. Animal Farm is satire. That is unknowledgeable, incessant rambling.
