Open alternatives to privative software (VI): evince, the PDF reader

Adobe reader users see this software get bigger and bigger, now is an enormous monster just for reading pdf files.

Fortunately there are a lot of alternative programs that can do this work with a few sizes and more reasonable requirements for this simple mission.
 Evince is one of them, the pdf reader included in most new GNU/Linux distros.
This software open files much faster because it is light software.

Can read all these formats:
  • PDF
  • Postscript
  • djvu
  • tiff
  • dvi
  • XPS
  • SyncTex support with gedit
  • comics books (cbz, cbr, cb7 and cbt)
Available in a lot of languages:

This an exclusive GNU/Linux software and a good reason to join to tux, anyway there is a lot of alternatives for other systems.Artículo original en castellano
