So how many users of Adobe Reader on Linux could there be ?
Me. There are no alternatives. For daily use, xpdf works fine. But when I need to send a book to a printer, I have to proof it with Acroread first. It's what the printer uses, and it's no use turning round after it's printed incorrectly and saying "well it looked fine to me in xpdf/evince/whatever". The fact is that none of them are pixel for pixel identical to Acroread (usually gradient fills are wrong, for example). If I want to see what my final printed output will look like, Acroread is the only option. Ideally, I'd be able to check it through a Fiery RIP too, but that's not an option.
