Guys I have to tell you about this,
On my 2 GHz when I go to open a PDF file Adobe reader opens it so slow, good logo on the way but slow, then when I go to close it down I beginning to think my computer is going to have a heart attack.
This opens so fast you will never see any logo, most likely you will get whip lush instead, when it stops loading.
Take a look at this then, "Foxit"
