I have an amusing addendum to this thread. I had mentioned how FrameMaker once silently removed my installation of Adobe Acrobat. I'll add that I could not re-install Acrobat because my copy used a telephone registration method that Adobe stopped supporting. I was so pissed about this that I refused to buy Acrobat for years.

But a few days ago I was lucky enough to WIN a copy of Adobe Technical Communication Suite 5 in a raffle, and it includes the latest version of Adobe Acrobat. So I am made whole! And now I know that Adobe smiles down upon me, and I will never say anything bad about them again!

That's very bad program behavior. A couple years ago I installed an evaluation copy of Adobe FrameMaker 10, and it uninstalled my very old (but legal and still useful) version of Adobe Acrobat Pro. It did this without asking me or mentioning it. Bizarre.
