    I very much enjoy using PDF Studio. PDF Studio is a versatile tool for manipulating and annotating PDFs. This is the perfect replacement to Adobe Acrobat(I use Ubuntu). There is a slight learning curve. However the installation is very simple. I use it to edit my notes as a college student.

    qpdfview is the best I’ve come around. FOSS, nice rendering, nice annotations. However for everyday things I stick with eVince.

    OKULAR /Evince / xpdf all based on poppler, and have problem when handing GBK charset, for Chinese people we suggest not use these pdf reader.

    Greetings … Is there any software in Linux to convert pdf to odt (or docx)?

    At the moment Foxit is the most reliable PDF viewer (I mean – it will render all documents without any issues and have good support for annotations/comments and highlighting).

    Evince has problems with annotations/comments, more advanced PDF’s (not always are rendered as intended) and it’s quite slow for larger documents.

    PDF.js works well with smaller docs – it’s quite good to preview downloaded PDF’s in the browser, but is very slow).

    Didn’t tried Okular since it has too much dependencies for GTK based environments.

    MuPDF is missing in this list – it’s very fast so I use to quick preview documents…
