What do you use this Adobe Acrobat for?

Mostly for viewing,reading or printing PDF files but the software seems so expensive to buy.Are the following the same.

They are certainly cheaper

If all you want to do is read, viwe, print then just download the free Adobe Reader

Go hear and select Adobe Reader

Hi iscanut2 have done what you suggested and installed adobe reader

Ponytail: as Iscanut says, if all you want to do is to read, view or print .pdf files, then what you need is Adobe Reader. Way back when, there was only Adobe Acrobat, and many people used that as their .pdf reader - but now, Adobe has released Adobe Reader which does what it says on the tin. If all you want is to view/print .pdf files, you just need Reader and you don't need to spend any money. Here is the official Adobe download site.
