Free program for PDF files?
 
What is a free program for PDF files? Legal downloads only, of course. I'm really just interested in reading them. I know that there is an Adobe PDF program, but I don't know if it is free or if there is a free version with a time limit. Just looking for something that is free with no time limit and is free of spyware.

Acrobat Reader is free; it's just not open-source.

On the Linux platform, I use okular. It has an especially amusing option in its settings -- "Obey DRM limitations" -- that can be disabled.

Just easy.

For freeware readers, it's Foxit; and to print out PDFs for free, it's DoPDF.

What exactly do you want to do to the PDF? View? Print to PDF? Edit?

Adobe Acrobat Reader is free, so is Foxit Reader.

CutePDF Writer is a pretty good print to PDF virtual printer.

Mozilla has an open source HTML5+Javascript PDF Viewer under active development.

If you're brave, you can install it as an add-on or enable it in Firefox Nightly where it's already included:

https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/pdfjs/

Expect to find bugs until Mozilla decides it's worthy enough to ship with a stable Firefox release. It should be relatively useable at this point in time, but don't be surprised if PDFs with complex layouts have display issues.
