Be very careful when viewing Beamer presentations with anything other than
Adobe. I have found that the presentations never display correctly and when
giving a presentation, it is almost a guarantee that you will be presenting
on Adobe. If you are not using Beamer, anything else should work. I stick
with Adobe because it is the standard. If potential problems occur, I might
have to switch but for now, it seems better for me to deal with the issues
than switch.
