I guess Mac has better PDF support than any other platform. Acrobat
Reader on Linux is slow to start up, does not come standard with Linux
distros, is a rather large download.

I have never heard of Okular, but a quick Google search reveals it's
part of KDE apps. I use Evince (included with Ubuntu) or Acrobat
Reader to view or print PDF's. Each have there own strengths, but no
single one is a clear winner.

I must admit, I haven't used FPC's PDF or HTML docs in some time. The
INF versions are very near 100% complete, so they already fulfil my
documentation needs and integrate well with Lazarus IDE and MSEide.
