Additional Comments

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.
