Edit request on 25 October 2012[edit]

The article is incorrect. Adobe Acrobat and Reader XI (11) is not supported on Windows Vista, despite being supported on Windows XP, 2003 R2, 2008, 2008 R2, 7, and 8. [1] 180.246.195.73 (talk) 16:45, 25 October 2012 (UTC)

Propose use of Template:Version[edit]

This template is already used to display the release histories of Dreamweaver, Firefox, and other programs. Let's use it here as well. The Mysterious El Willstro (talk) 07:25, 10 January 2013 (UTC)

January 2010 Google/China incident[edit]

I have no idea what this incident is about, but as the paragraph stands now it seems to have nothing to do with Acrobat. Remove or change? 192.51.44.14 (talk) 05:05, 13 May 2013 (UTC)

Nothing about Adobe charging for Acrobat Reader[edit]

How come there is nothing in this article about Adobe's attempts to force Acrobat users to pay for the "free" software. With at least 2 releases (1 I believe in the 1990s, the 2nd in the early 2000s), Adobe who had hooked users into using their product against competing versions of "document readers", tried to charge users for various application uses of Acrobat Reader, such as printing or saving a document. If you wanted to save you could only do so, if you bought the product. It was the same for printing. However, Adobe (with a history of this kind of behavior since their inception) received a number of complaints, particularly from corporate IT users, and removed the limitations. But this should absolutely be included here as part of the Acrobat Reader history and should undoubtedly be included in Adobe's corporate history as well...

Hi. May I see your source please? Oh, and by the way, what is "Acrobat Reader"? We have "Acrobat" and we have "Reader", but that? Best regards, Codename Lisa (talk) 23:52, 8 August 2013 (UTC)

Word processor?[edit]

What is the difference between Acrobat and Microsoft Word? Or is the difference between pdf and the Word document format? On Word it states it is a word processor, isn't Adobe Acrobat one too? What are the real differences that don't make Adobe Acrobat a word processor, because i don't see it mentioned anywhere in the article? --Alien4 (talk) 14:02, 9 May 2014 (UTC)

Adobe Acrobat#See also lists "Creative Cloud Controversy"[edit]

I'm unsure why this is listed and why it links only to the Creative Cloud article. Details of actual controversy and criticism are here Adobe Systems#Source code and customer data breach and here Adobe Systems#Criticism of Creative Cloud. Would it not be better to link directly to one or both?
