- About the installer size:
I agree with Shark007, we are in 2009 with 1TB hdd at less than 99$ and DSL connection at 10$/month
Most of people don't care about file sizes anymore so it's useless to care about saving 3MB.
For example I don't care if I have to download a file of 10MB or 100MB, it's the same for me (I can wait a few minutes more without problems)
So XhmikosR, there are no needs to worry about that
- About the lite installer:
As I said before, I really appreciate the work behind the repackings and I'm used to use lite versions of official installers (I use iTunes lite, Quicktime and Real alternatives, Nero lite, etc).
They are lighter than original package and work with no issues
But this is the main point, "with no issues"
If I use iTunes Lite, I'm sure I can do all the tasks I can perform with official iTunes and I can open all kinds of media files the program supports.
If I use Nero Lite, I'm sure I can burn all kinds of disks with no limitations compared to bloated full version.
And so on.
If I find a file that cannot be opened with lite version of a tool (and works fine with full), there's something wrong
This is what is happening with Adobe Reader Lite.
I'm a computer specialist and, in my personal experience, Adobe Reader Lite is not reliable enough.
I cannot risk to have a lot of customers calling me back for assistance because they are not able to open a 3D PDF file or fill a particular kind of form.
Lite versions are good and I love them, but we need to keep in mind the main target.
We can remove all extra and unnecessary features / plugins, but that has not to interfere with the ability of program to manage the files it has been created for.
I checked several pcs with full Adobe Reader 9.1 installed and I didn't find any process in background when the application is closed
The only step I performed was removing the shortcut in startup folder
