I've never tried it, as the Windows version is 100 times slower
than Xpdf on Linux. I can't speak for Acrobat on Linux, but I am
very satisfied with Xpdf's performance and functionality.

I know this doesn't help any, just wanted to throw in the mention
that Xpdf seems to be *much* faster than the Adobe product.
