Can anyone explain, in logical terms, why Adobe Acrobat reader on my Windows machines seem to require weekly (or more frequent) updates that also require a reboot of the computer? It’s a document reader! What could it possibly need of the core system that would require a reboot of the operating system? And why the hell does it need weekly updates to begin with?
One more reason I prefer Linux and Macs to Windows machines.
You never see on a Mac, “Hey, we updated Preview! You’d better reboot or you won’t be able to view these static documents!” Nor do you see on Linux, “Oh, there’s an update for vi — you better install it now and reboot or you won’t be able to edit any plain-text text files!”
