Adobe acrobat is possibly the worlds slowest software

Filed under: Technology — jlebl @ 7:07 pm

See title. It took about 5 minutes to open a pdf that evince opens in a second or two and that xpdf opens essentially instantly. I was ready to xkill acrobat. Unfortunately for whatever reason evince did not allow me to click checkboxes in a form so I needed acrobat.

Talking about slow applications, the cannon mp560 printer scanner is taking about the equivalent time to scan a single page now. But here I assume it may have to do with the fact that I am using it over wifi.
