Where do you get the 6 GB?
I simply right clicked on the folder that contains adobe reader 9 and nothing else, the rest of the Adobe products are in a folder one level up that also contains the reader folder, in any case when I click properties, that is the size it lists, in fact to be more exact 6.2 gigabytes. I did the same with the folder containing LibreOffice, and 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 the transition from reader 9 to reader 10, and dumping some unnecessary crap.

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. [ ... ]
