Adobe Reader 7.0 Appears in First Linux Distribution Through Linspire

Adobe Makes Most Significant Acrobat Reader Advances for Desktop Linux Since 2002

SAN DIEGO, April 13 /PRNewswire/ -- Linspire, Inc. today announced immediate availability of Adobe Reader 7.0 for Linux to Linspire users, dramatically improving the ability for desktop Linux users to open, view, search, and print Portable Document Files (PDFs). The full Adobe Reader 7.0 version is the first upgrade Adobe Systems, Inc. has produced for Linux users since Adobe Reader 5.0.9 for Linux in 2002. Linspire is the first desktop Linux distributor to provide the product directly to their customer base. Linspire users can immediately install Reader 7.0 for Linux free with one click at http://www.linspire.com/adobe7.

"Adobe Reader 7.0 for Linux provides desktop Linux users another important tool for daily use on par with Windows and Mac users," said Michael Robertson, CEO of Linspire, Inc. "Adobe pioneered document sharing and secure collaboration across operating systems. More and more, major software vendors are seeing the value in creating cross-platform versions of their software for Linux. Adobe's advanced support shows its understanding of the viability of the desktop Linux market."

With this new release, desktop Linux users will have the most updated version of Adobe's Reader, which had previously only been available to Windows and Mac users. Adobe Reader 7.0 for Linux offers drastic improvements over the 5.x Linux versions, such as better font rendering, faster launch of PDF documents and real-time zooming and panning. Adobe Reader 7.0 also includes advanced collaboration tools such as document review participation and the ability to view encrypted and signed PDFs. More information about Adobe Reader 7.0 for Linux is available at http://www.linspire.com/adobe7.

Adobe Reader 7.0 for Linux has been optimized for easy and seamless integration into the Linspire operating system, and Linspire engineers have thoroughly tested it on Linspire 4.5 and Five-0 for compatibility. Adobe Reader 7.0 can be installed immediately using Linspire's CNR Technology and will be pre-installed in upcoming versions of Linspire Five-0.

Linspire's CNR Technology makes new software available to Linspire users within a day of its release, so they don't have to wait for an OS update. In addition, Linspire users don't have to experience the complicated process of downloading, installing and configuring new programs -- with CNR technology, they install new software with one click of their mouse.
