Topic: Windows Me users left out

I was shocked and disappointed to discover that Acrobat 6 which I received May 29, wouldn't install on Windows Me. There was nothing in the promotional mailer I'd received weeks ago that mentioned this. Since I have version 5 installed on Windows Me, it never occurred to me that version 6 would be a problem.

I contacted Adobe and the person I talked to told me the system requirements included Windows 98 Second Edition, NT, 2000, and XP. Apparently Me users are out in the cold with this version.

Further, I have to repackage the software and mail it back to Adobe where I purchased it, and wait for my credit card to be credited.

I'm very unhappy not to be able to upgrade Acrobat 5. I have had every version since Acrobat came on the market and have always looked forward to more and varied features; especially since I use Acrobat every day to create pdf proofs and interactive forms at work.

Now, it looks like I won't be getting any new versions of Acrobat until I buy a new computer again, which won't be for a couple of years.

Maybe this is a misunderstanding on my part and someone can tell me how to make it work on my system. Or it is a bewildering oversight by Adobe that might be fixed somehow.

Why eBooks and mobile devices don't (yet) pose an existential threat to the PDF

Continuous upheaval is what makes watching the technology industry so exciting. David vs. Goliath battles are waged every day, with startups often winning against much larger businesses. For years and years, many have predicted the decline of the PDF given its age and perceived disadvantages. Today, with the PDF losing ground in emerging areas like mobile and eBooks, the calls for its ultimate demise are growing louder.
