“Adobe Reader 7.0 for Linux provides desktop Linux users another important tool for daily use on par with Windows and Mac users,” said Michael Robertson, CEO of Linspire, Inc. “Adobe pioneered document sharing and secure collaboration across operating systems. More and more, major software vendors are seeing the value in creating cross-platform versions of their software for Linux. Adobe's advanced support shows its understanding of the viability of the desktop Linux market.”

With this new release, desktop Linux users will have the most updated version of Adobe's Reader, which had previously only been available to Windows and Mac users. Adobe Reader 7.0 for Linux offers drastic improvements over the 5.x Linux versions, such as better font rendering, faster launch of PDF documents and real-time zooming and panning. Adobe Reader 7.0 also includes advanced collaboration tools such as document review participation and the ability to view encrypted and signed PDFs.

Adobe Reader 7.0 for Linux has been optimized for easy and seamless integration into the Linspire operating system, and Linspire engineers have thoroughly tested it on Linspire 4.5 and Five-0 for compatibility. Adobe Reader 7.0 can be installed immediately using Linspire's CNR Technology and will be pre-installed in upcoming versions of Linspire Five-0.

Linspire's CNR Technology makes new software available to Linspire users within a day of its release, so they don't have to wait for an OS update. In addition, Linspire users don't have to experience the complicated process of downloading, installing and configuring new programs - with CNR technology, they install new software with one click of their mouse.

Adobe Reader 7.0 is the most recent addition to Linspire's innovative CNR Warehouse, where more than 2,000 software titles are available, including full office and productivity suites, games, multimedia players, photo management software, accounting tools, and more.
