Acrobat 7 seems to use gtk ;) .

Yes. And it is disgustingly slow and doesn't integrate with Gnome or KDE. I'm not saying that's GTK's fault, but it really shows that we've now reached a point where the open source apps of all kinds are just plain superior to those proprietary apps that used to be held up as the holy grail..

Well, Adobe Reader is slow on all platforms.

On Windows I use FoxItReader (damn small and fast and all you could ever wish for in a PDF reader), and on linux I can recommend xpdf if speed is the main issue. Otherwise you could use gPDF or a third option.

So just use Evince, I prefer that to *any* version of Acrobat Reader ever released by Adobe, I hope it gets ported to win32 one day ...
