It's kind of sad and pitiful, the degree to which Adobe Acrobat updates keep popping up and asking me to download them. Like a little lost dog...like a little lost incontinent dog that can't stop rolling in very dead things, and trying to drag them home, but still, it's not like it knows any better....
I ditched Acrobat for Foxit years ago and I don't miss the ...e x t r e m e...s l o w n e s s... of Acrobat, nor the lovely way they started trying to sneak opt-out crapware into the update downloads. For all I know Foxit could be sending copies of everything I open off to the Red Chinese or the Californian shadow-government of reptiloids (highly unlikely), but at least it does so while opening PDFs with speed and ease. Good luck with the old-radio schematics and cat memes, you hideous things from another world and/or Beijing!
Oh, look, there's Adobe Acrobat again, whining at the door and trying not to stink. Shoo! Shoo!
