    Besides being smaller, lighter, and much faster; another bonus is that Foxit is completely portable.

    Same here. I've used Foxit Reader for quite a while, but at times it does have some problems with some of the newer PDF documents. There are some that won't open at all, and I have to use the actual Adobe program. I have noticed, however, that Adobe 8 opens much quicker for me than Adobe 7. Adobe 7 used to take forever, but the newest versions seems to open as fast as Foxit. I think part of the trick is not allowing the Adobe 8 installer to place all those programs in auto-start. I haven't even felt the need to get the speedup program.
