Adobe Releasing Linux-friendly Reader

Back in Februrary Adobe released a pre-release version of Adobe Reader for the people in the Netherlands. Well it looks like they are done fixing it up and are readying it for launch on the Linux platform.

The graphics software powerhouse said it plans to announce version 7 for Linux and make it available on its Web site on Tuesday. (Version 7.0 for Microsoft Windows shipped in November 2004.) Adobe Reader lets people read and print documents stored in PDF, or Portable Document Format, and the new version also enables people to fill out forms electronically.

Even though Linux was never in need of any new PDF reader software technically, marketing-wise this is a very good thing because it gives corporations just a bit more confidence to make the switch due to the backing of a major corporation like Adobe.

Now if only all the distros could get one package management/install system in place everything would move just a bit faster.
