(This post is from my old, old, super old site. My views have changed over the years, hopefully my writing has improved, and there is now more than a handful of folks reading my site. Enjoy.)

Decompressing is powered by who? Why do I care? Ads on the installer?

... "Recomposition", that's a new one to me. Another word for "decompression"? (Powered by iNOSSO of course). Ok, time to launch it. Why yes, Adobe Reader gets its own folder in /Applications ... with the app and a single ReadMe. Would it make sense to show the readme on startup, and just put Reader in /Applications without its own folder? Nah. First launch. A menu bar with no menus, and then this. Why am I not surprised? Figures.

Hey, did you hear PDF became an ISO standard today? w00t!
