Gnome GNOME 2.12 will be released to the world on September 7th, 2005, culminating 6 months of very exciting work by members of the project. A number of exciting technologies come together in GNOME 2.12 that will set the standard for free software desktops to come. Here is a sample of some of the outstanding work that has gone into GNOME thanks to its many contributors.

If you reduce your view to Gtk-only you might be right. KPDF 0.4 (released with KDE 3.4) is certainly the best xpdf/libpoppler-based PDF-viewer for Linux/Unix in general though. For more information have a look at:

http://kpdf.kde.org/

rayiner was right with respect to kpdf 0.3 -- it WAS glacial slow. But for KPDF 0.4 the glacier has melted! It's incredible fast now (just like any current xpdf/libpoppler-based PDF-Viewer these days).
