Adobe asked Twitter to remove a tweet because it linked to an unauthorized MS-DOS copy of a 27-year old release of Acrobat Reader 1.0.

In a recent tweet, Hyppönen mentioned that the software company removed one of his tweets that linked to an old copy of Acrobat Reader for MS-DOS. This software, hosted on WinWorld, came out more than 27-years ago, shortly after the PDF was invented.

i think microsoft still have comfortable margin far ahead, but adobe has been on free-sofware’s people hatelist for quite a long time ;)

all the security vulnerabilities because of flash/reader… all the people getting viruses because they tried a Photoshop crack… so many reasons to hate adobe really

yeah, ms is definitely one of the worst. if u think bout its fucking mental that xbox exclusives exist. imagine a company blocking their own users flom playing games on their OS because you need to buy their OTHER OS. FUCKING MENTAL

The request was actually sent by a copyright watchdog acting in their name, not by adobe themselves. Not that it makes Adobe much better people, to be honest :)

Did you try some free-software tools by any chance? Depending on your usecase, Gimp, Krita or Inkscape can be really good tools.

GIMP has received great updates in the past years and is now very actively developed/maintained by very friendly people. They’re really open to suggestions/critiques if you feel like talking about your bad experiences.

Inkscape is more slow in progress but for my usecase it’s always been a pleasure to use… but that’s because i’m not doing digital drawing, Krita is much better suited for that :)

EDIT: i’d be curious about your usecase and why free-software tools don’t do it. if they’re not good for your usecase, they’re probably not good for others as well, so it makes sense when we can afford it to take time and make constructive criticism to help developers guide their efforts

multiple art boards

I’m not familiar with multiple art boards. Is this what it’s about? Is it any more powerful than this? If so can you show me a tutorial/documentation on how it works?

i use multiple windows in inkscape and tabs in Gimp. I would find it useful in some situations to have several tabs/windows on the same active drawing window. Also the “save all artboards” feature sounds useful. Exporting each file individually can take time when there’s a bunch of those. I believe inkscape/gimp project would be happy to receive such a feature request. Should it include anything else for your usecase?

You can try Libre Office, it’s cool these days, plus what the other mentioned.
