True. Now I'll add my Adobe-related pet peeve. I call it Acrobat
Reader still, since that was the original name. Adobe has renamed it
"Adobe Reader", but that's just not accurate. Acrobat Reader does not
read _all_ Adobe product files. It only reads PDF files - no more, no
less. It should therefore not be called Adobe Reader, it should be
Acrobat Reader. Couple this with the fact that it does not read Acrobat
files, but PDF files, and I can see a parallel... it's like calling
FrontPage the Internet...
/me steps down from his soapbox and sits down.
