What is the Adobe Acrobat Reader, is it really free and
what does PDF mean?
The Acrobat Reader is a software package developed by Adobe Systems
Incorporated to enable the use of documents created in Adobe
Acrobat. The Acrobat software is purchased by those who create
the documents, the Reader is available free to any user needing to
read a PDF document. PDF stands for Portable Document
Format - in plain English, a document that can be read on any
computer, with any operating system, and any word processing
software by using the free Reader - hence "portable".
