Avoid Adobe Reader 9

Adobe has just released its update to Reader, and an important function has been removed: Documents that are forms with fields you can fill out can no longer be saved (SaveAs...) with the data typed in. It can print them, but it will save only the blank form. Reader 8 had no trouble with this, so do NOT install Reader 9, even if you get warnings from Adobe. It's hard to believe they would make such a stupid mistake; removing this feature must have been an intentional decision.

Keep an eye on Macintouch to stay current.
