Nagware

I just installed a "recommended" Acrobat reader upgrade, as in I seem to get a pop-up every time I start Acrobat reader telling me to "upgrade". I think we need a name for software that does this - nagware, maybe (update: looks like "nagware" is already taken). Moreover I had to reboot the thinkpad *twice*. I wonder what it's doing that it needs to restart a computer two times - it doesn't strike me as sandboxed, and given how many PDFs are downloaded these days... fret, fret, fret.

4Gbs of RAM on a laptop running a VMware image - that's the future.
