Good for Adobe.. One of the guys I work with was actually a beta tester. Says it's a much better product.

Although Adobe is very smart for supporting linux... It's getting quite stiff compitition here compared to Windows. For instance you have ghostscript, which is a free framework for making postscript/pdf files and OO.org has output-to-pdf feature which you have to pay for Adobe distiller for MS Office, I beleive.

Good stuff. Now I can have a nice program to get the odd pdf files that won't work in gpdf.

Also in a side note if you ever need to author professional looking PDF files, or make something to be published (like fliers or CD covers or whatnot) check out (link) It's a Linux/OSS application for desktop layout and publishing.

Scribus is a very cool app. It has really matured the past year or so, and very much usable on a daily basis now.

Did you find a template for CD or DVD covers? I only see a few templates included with the latest version. I guess I could always create my own, but if it has already been done, why waste time...

The psychological profiling [of a programmer] is mostly the ability to shift levels of abstraction, from low level to high level. To see something in the small and to see something in the large. (Donald Knuth)
