I am just beginning to use Acrobat 2.0 to distribute a library of technical
documentation on my company's software product. Especially now that the reader
is free (it wasn't in version 1.0), it's extremely cost-effective. But beware:
although the reader seems to work well for viewing documents on almost anybody's
PC, it can be finicky when it comes to printing. It doesn't seem to do a great
job with printers that don't have a lot of RAM, and it can be picky about the
options set up for your print driver. I'm interested in hearing about the
hiccups other people have run into with this product, too.
