seems that Adobe has even taken steps to "lock in" users so they must use
the Adobe reader. The problem with Adobe software is until recently, Adobe
hasn't taken security seriously. In addition, most Adobe software is old
and has patch upon patch. They really need to have a fresh start.
Recently, Adobe has given indications that they are going to abandon Flash
and go to HTML-5.
Unless the files are huge, are the bandwidth savings really worth it? Also
just because we are using Linux doesn't insure one will not get malware.
I've heard that some of the security holes in the PDF format might allow
malware to be installed on Linux computers. I might be paranoid about
security and from my point of view, going to PDF is just not worth it.
