Inside Windows 8: The Reader Application

Also want to note that this enables anyone to open PDF documents out of the box. When I first installed Win8, I had not yet installed Adobe reader. However, I had to open a pdf file, and luckily, double-clicking a pdf document opened the file on the reader.
I do still need and use adobe reader because this default reader is missing some features I rely on.
But this built in reader is important because we no longer have to worry if someone has a PDF reader installed when we send them a pdf file.
Would be nice if it opened Word docs too.
