The Acrobat Product Family

The Acrobat product family consists of several related products. These range from the free Adobe Reader software to the powerful, full-featured Professional version of Adobe Acrobat.

Reader

Most computer users are familiar with the free Adobe Reader software, formerly called Adobe Acrobat Reader. Unfortunately, many users have long been confused about the difference between Acrobat Reader and Acrobat itself, assuming that they had the full version of Acrobat on their computers just because they were able to view PDF files. This is one reason Adobe has renamed the Adobe Acrobat Reader to simply Adobe Reader. Another reason is that Reader lets you view or read more than just Acrobat PDF files. It also contains the functionality formerly found in Adobe eBook Reader, so Reader is now both a PDF and eBook viewing application. Adobe Reader 7.0 is available for free download from Adobe's website at www.adobe.com/reader. It can also be found on many software installation CDs because software manuals and read me files are often distributed in PDF format.
