Re: [tdf-discuss] New "LibreOffice Reader" Eliminates Need for "PDF Reader"

I personally feel we have more important set of priorities than diversifying
right now into PDF reader. Also no point inventing the wheel again when
there are several open source pdf readers available which we can integrate
instead of developing one of our own.

I am wondering do any of the open source pdf readers mentioned above work with Windows or are they all Linux, I mostly use Windows. What I meant by HUGE when I referred to Adobe Reader was the more than 6 Gigs of hard drive space it takes up! By contrast all of the LibreOffice suite of programs takes up 475 Megs of space. That means that a mere reader takes up more than a dozen times the space of an entire office suite. If that isn't mega-bloat I don't know what is. It has been a long time, but I seem to remember Adobe Reader only taking 12 Megs of space at one time. It used to come included on almost all driver disks, now it is just too big for that.
Won't it be a better idea to collaborate with one of the groups supporting
the pdf readers available in Linux distros ...Such cooperation will help
everyone focus on their core competencies.

My 2 cents !

Thank You

and at the same time allow for the editing of this standard through the
regular use of ODF. We do have the user support and I am not sure, but our
dev numbers are up and I think that this would make quite an interesting and
exciting project to add to the TDF line of products.
