Near everybody in the real world out there uses Windows (either
by choice or because of policy decisions), and almost all of those
users use Acrobat reader to look at PDFs.

The Reader is a badly designed program, but unless you know of an
alternative that can display PDFs with the same quality and same
extensive feature set, we are stuck with it.

Somebody on tex-implementors suggested an Abort/Retry/Fail approach
like DOS used to have, and that makes sense to me. Definately on
Windows, but I would like to have that as well (and I am on linux).

Best wishes,
