I make fair use of Acrobat & Reader these days. I generally prefer reading PDF files, and use Acrobat because anyone else can read PDF files and because I can use any font format. Word has an absurd policy of allowing only TTF files to be embedded, although both TTF and OTF font files contain the same information; Word 12 does allow DOCX files to contain either, but who's got Word 12? No one I know.
As with Word, it's obvious to anyone who has either that everyone has it.

PDF is generally better for this purpose, but not everyone has the ability to make them (a shame, as there *are* free programs for this).
