Do they feel they aren't hated enough, that they yet need to push the hatred envelope a little further?

Why is it that downloading their damn Reader can take an hour on a broadband connection? Seriously, are they trying to suck ALL the ass in the world?

No...problem...here. Refocus your anger on the wire that plugs into your computer, what's between that and your ISP, and then back to using Adobe reader.

You don't need Adobe Reader, so uninstall it and move on.

Nothing wrong with the connection. It works just fine.

Adobe doesn't want anyone to simply "download" Reader. Instead, you download an installer, which controls a later download and installation of the software. This can frequently take an hour or more, depending upon the time of day, date, and any recent relevant updating activity on Adobe's part.

An hour to download 20 megabytes.

Adobe sucks ass.
