it listed the size of that as 475 megabytes. So I am pretty much forced
to believe it. Perhaps Adobe is going in the right direction again in

Where do you get the 6 GB?

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.
