   My default PDF viewer has always been xpdf. As the Slackware version does
not support the most recent Adobe PDF versions I use mupdf for those. My
only use of acroread has been slide presentations.

   Now that I've learned that xpdf provides a fullscreen mode I've removed
the acroread packages from all my hosts.

   And privacy and resource use are concerns; acroread binaries are
comparatively small and it does not track me over the Web.
