Adobe has released the latest version of it’s popular PDF reading program Adobe Reader X.
Adobe had announced the upcoming version of their Acrobat Family of Products last month with a new feature that provides better security via “Protected mode.” This feature is enabled by default in Adobe Reader X.
Protected Mode is a sandboxing technology based on Microsoft’s Practical Windows Sandboxing technique. It is similar to the Google Chrome sandbox and Microsoft Office 2010 Protected Viewing Mode.
With Protected Mode enabled, all PDF file operations will run in a restricted manner inside a confined environment, the “sandbox”. So, if you open a PDF document which has scripts include that may try to change your computer’s file system or registry settings the “Protected Mode” will protect you against it.
Reader X is also tightly integrated with Adobe SendNow, an online file sharing service. Using this service you will be able to send the PDF document you are reading to anyone without having to launch an email client. Other than PDF this service also allows you to send images and other office documents.

- View and interact PDF files with that contain even wider variety of content types, including drawings, email messages, spreadsheets,videos and other multimedia elements

There’s no Adobe Reader X for Linux…
Thanks for the update! 🙂
Adobe Reader 9 series for Linux is but a piece of shit.
Its existing is for to prove that Adobe “care” about crossplarm of the Reader,
but the “Quality” of software is never among Adobe’s concerns.
Now, how dare Adobe have not released the X version for Linux!
FΛCK U, Adobe!
Adobe is not at fault because the Linux community creates such a crappy product that no one wants to use it. Not only is that community utterly incompetent, they’re aggressive, hostile, and immature, as your comment clearly proves.
You probably just want to have a go at the troll… but it just comes out as ignorance on what Linux is.
Linux is NOT an operating system. Linux is a kernel on which several operating systems are based.
As for the “nobody wants to use it” part, should I remind you that the great majority of servers run on Linux based OS, that Android (Linux based) has a big share of the mobile market and that many embedded systems run Linux? Also, many governmental agencies have in the last few years switched to Linux OSs and to open source software.
Open source is the future, face it. The rise of products such as Firefox, Google Chrome, Hadoop, R is a clear and strong proof of this.
Personally, since I left Windows for Fedora a few years ago I would never ever go back, and lack of Adobe X will not really change my life. Adobe 9 or any other opensource alternative, such as Evince, are good for 99.99%, if not 100% of my needs.
If you think Linux is not good, instead of telling people who promote it that they are big losers you should try and help the community in developing a better product.
I will not comment on the “incompetent, immature and hostile community” part, but if you care to give me proof of that we can educately discuss about it. As of now, sorry but you seem to be the hostile one.
