Truly! You do not need to buy Adobe Acrobat to create .PDF files and you do not need / should not use Adobe Reader to view PDFs.

The PDF file format is a great way to distribute digital content if you’re concerned about:

  • memorializing a document or content into a specific layout
  • ensuring your document can be viewed on any device
  • enforcing very mild security on your content to prevent easy changes

The propensity for Windows users to perpetuate the myth that they must spend hundreds of dollars to create a PDF or install the wildly vulnerable Adobe Reader will never cease to amaze us.

Here’s a few alternatives:

  1. Try Sumatra
  2. Print to PDF from Microsoft Office
  3. Use a Mac
  4. Use Windows 8
