I checked the size of C:\Program Files\Adobe\Reader 9.0\ on my remaining Windows XP SP3 computer, 
and the size is 137MB, smaller than the 181MB for Reader 10.0 on my Windows 7 system.

So I still don't have any way to account for the reported observation of a 6GB folder.  I don't 
doubt it, I just can't attribute it to the normal installation footprint of Adobe Reader.

It would be interesting to know what folders within the 6GB Reader folder are the largest and what 
they appear to contain.

Back to discussion, what's with all the PDF hate. 
Actually I don't hate PDF, I use it frequently and as such I am glad 
that OOo and LO have the capability of outputting in that format.  My 
only real complaint is that Adobe has let their reader application 
become unnecessarily bloated, see below.

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.
