I'm not sure why so many people are complaining that Adobe Acrobat X is worse than its predecessors. Some of the comments seem frivolous. I upgraded from Acrobat 7 and have found Acrobat X to be a much needed improvement. Here are a few features I particularly like:
1) I use OCR text recognition a lot so I can work on scanned articles. On older versions, this would bog down my computer and slow it down significantly. Now, the process is both quicker and less burdensome on the hard drive.
2) Acrobat X allows for more options with the icons. You can have a 1-click icon for OCR recognition, and rearrange them.
3) Making portfolios of documents is both easier to do and to customize. I had never bothered to learn this feature on previous versions, but since it's so easy I might just use it.
4) I like the integration with web browsers, particularly Safari. Loading a pdf in the browser gives a clear image of the document, with a toolbar near the bottom that can disappear. Downloads also seem to be quicker, although I'm not sure how much of that is due to Acrobat X.
5) Doesn't crash as often!
Overall, I'm still learning the ins and outs of the program, but so far I haven't encountered any deal-breakers. By contrast, it's running better than my previous version and is probably worth getting if you use pdfs extensively.
