The Best PDF Reader
I am of the opinion that the Unix method is correct. You need software that does one thing and does it well. If you need a high quality reader application then you should look into downloading MuPDF. MuPDF does one thing and it does it right. It lets you view PDF, XPS, and E-book documents.
You can find the mupdf home page here.
