Not exactly correct.

Adobe Acrobat is something that Adobe sells as a standalone product for
around $200. (If anyone's looking for a copy, there are often copies
for sale on eBay for less than half of that.) It includes Acrobat
Distiller (the thing that makes PDFs using PostScript files), Acrobat
Exchange (the souped-up version of Acrobat Reader that lets you edit
and create cross-references in Acrobat files), and a bunch of other

Adobe also bundles the full version of Adobe Acrobat in several of its
powerhouse applications: PageMaker, FrameMaker, and Illustrator (I
think) -- possibly others.

Hope that helps.
