The one and very same thing. What is different is Acrobat from Acrobat
Reader. The former is a full blown grahical PDF editor. The latter is
a read-only viewer (with some bookmarking ability and far better
bitmap dithering and Type 3 font rendering added in version 7). For a
reader I take Evince first anyday even though it is quite unfinished,
probably needs two Gnome releases more to reach maturity, Kpdf always
finds ways to annoy me. XPdf is based on motif and feels soo 1987, oh
