It was not meant as a personal attack. I'm sorry you chose to take it
But I stand by my statement. Adobe does, in fact, have a history of
doing things that way. I've been dealing with Adobe for a long time, and
I have seen it with my own two eyes. And, after all, it makes good
business sense, doesn't it? The fewer retro versions a company has to
deal with, the easier it is for them. And there is also the matter of
keeping the coffers full.
I meant it not as a condemnation but merely as what I state it to be: a
speculation. As I say, I'm sorry you chose to take offense.

Your insinuation that I give my advice wrt/ multiple versions of Acrobat
installed in parallel as an "attempt to coerce everyone to keep up with
the latest offering"
is highly insulting and couldn't be farther from the truth!
