I was removing Adobe Acrobat Reader 6 from an old Win2000 machine. The Add/Remove Program applet showed it used 43.5MB space. The computer also has Adobe Acrobat (full version) 4 installed by the side, which only takes a meager 8.77MB. The new Adobe Reader 8 I think takes more than 90 MB. You'd wonder how much functionality stuffed in the bloated package actually gets used once in a hundred years. On-demand functionality, anyone?
