one other thing (which i learned at a workshop) is that, although
acroread is closed-source software (which i personally prefer not to
use when not needed), acroread will give you the least problems with
this is due to the lack of development for certain pdf-formats in all
the other open-source alternatives
one more thing is that acroread 7.x tries "to call home" in some
unreadable format, if you don't like this the easiest solution is to
disable the plugins (or don't install them)
gpg-key: lynx -dump http://scii.nl/~albi/gpg.asc | gpg --import
