Does anyone know if I can still get old versions of Acrobat to work and register?

    No idea if the old versions of Reader work in Windows.....but the very last, final Linux version (Reader9) works great for me in 'Puppy' Linux!

    It's a big program by Puppy standards (which tries to keep applications as small as possible), but it just does everything I want it to.....including annotation, which many Linux PDF apps won't handle very well, for some reason.

    On an unrelated note (somewhat), Acrobat 5.x was far and away the best version of this venerated program (in my opinion, for what little it's worth). The bloat started creeping in with 6.x, and it seemed to get worse with every subsequent version. I would still be using Acrobat 5.x if it wasn't for modern .pdf files rapidly losing compatibility (though it should be possible to restore the incompatible files with a converter whereby 5.x can read them properly). Even Foxit Reader, which became my favorite program for reading .pdf files after Adobe started filling theirs with bloatware, is now significantly bloated itself. I never understood that!
