Adobe reader / Flash Player without DLM

Adobe !!! I dont want DLM but i am stuck with it .. it is forefully installed on all windows system now for reader download.. But who wants unwanted software on his comp ??

Solutions :-

1) Use thier FTP site for most of the products. This is explained in

http://www.techerator.com/2010/07/how-to-install-adobe-reader-without-installing-adobe-dlm-download-manager-browser-plugin/

Their FTP site is ftp.adobe.com

2) Solution one is awesome but i was stuck, my institute dont allow ftp access, but here good news, windows is not the only OS(although one of the best for PC, i know many would disagree). The adobe states that DLM is installed on all supported systems ( http://kb2.adobe.com/cps/520/cpsid_52001.html ). But good news is most linux distros are not supported for now, i tried on ubuntu and fedora. Just choose different OS option and download :) enjoy. You can also save the link for future reference :)


Adobe reader X for windows is available at :-

ardownload was initially just download.. but adobe keep changing it :( Just for forcing adobe DLM ... I thought only apple would do so .. :D
