Installation, run program, open and view PDF files, Search text within PDF files. Fullscreen mode.
What does not
Online collaboration functions. Create PDF using Acrobat.com. Printing.
What was not tested
New features of Acrobat 9 (demo PDF files of this are still scarce). PDF commenting features.
The installer gives an error at the end about another instance running but at that stage it's already finished with installation so doesn't seem to pose a problem. Also, some intermittend text display issues, depending on what type of PDF I open. A typical text document didn't show all the text on the page until the display was refreshed. A slideshow exported from OpenOffice into PDF didn't show any text in Reader 9. Fullscreen mode never seems to have a problem though, including with the text files just mentioned. Menu/UI occasionally leaves garbage sitting on the screen until display refresh like resizing the program window. Not bad performance overall, I did not notice the slowness mentioned by another reviewer; Reader 9 proved to be quite responsive under Wine 1.1.5.
