Great point from PCPro about the fact that Windows 7 doesn’t support Adobe PDF’s out the box.
It’s a great point.
I for one am sick and tired of installing Adobe Reader as soon as I get a new PC.
Here’s what PCPro had to say about the issue…
Out of the box, Windows knows what to do with a huge range of files. Double-click on an MP3 and it will play; open a JPEG and it will display the photo.
Yet if you click on a PDF, Windows simply shrugs its shoulders.
PDF is a common format for manuals and technical documents, and anyone can implement a viewer without paying a licence fee. So there’s no reason – other than legal wrangles – why Windows shouldn’t come with this basic ability.
