<opinion on>
I am not the author of the original message, but your tone seems
inappropriate for what should be a simple discussion IMHO.
<opinion off>

There *IS* a version of Acrobat Reader 2.1 for HPUX, Solairs, and SunOS.
Look at http://www.adobe.com/Software/Acrobat/#unibat  You should check
your sources before you lash out at someone.  It would only make sense
in this mailing list about the WWW to check out the Adobe WWW site.
