Installing Acrobat

2007-02-05

Acrobat is a highly irritating application. It always tryies to be smart-ass and does far too much. Today, just trying to download it failed. The adobe site insists on using a download manager, which was just crashing.

Eventually, I managed to get the metadata file that the download manger uses — embedded in this was a URL. 10 seconds later, download complete.

Adobe, sort your life out. I just want to read a document. How hard can that be?
