Coming from one of your children-companies (Bellcore) back East, Acrobat works
just fine in NT. Bellcore is all NT, and we use Acrobat extensively..infact, it
is used internally for routing all drafts and document changes, externally for
sending our manuals to our customers, clients, and vendors on CD, intranets and
over the Internet. In what way is it not available? Feel free to call me or to
email me directly at Bellcore.
