Today I wanted to download Adobe Reader 8 so I could install it on our computers. Apparently Adobe doesn’t want you to do this. You have two options, Agree to their distrubition agreement (dutch version, sorry). or download it one by one on each computer which is a waste of bandwidth.

Don’t they want firms to use it anymore? What is behind this decision? I don’t know.

In the end I did the distribution agreement. So they first send you a mail to verify you are human or a smart bot. And then they try and send you another mail which happens to be encrypted. And guess what? Our Ironport virusscanner at the mailserver level doesn’t like that. So I ask you why are they sending the second mail encrypted? Why are they making life difficult for people?
