let's give them credit for providing acrobat reader for Linux. Not all
Linux distributions use SELinux and I think that Fedora is pretty much
out in front for SELinux development.

The problem is that Fedora can't fix 3rd party software but the 3rd
parties that produce software which butts into SELinux issues must get
feedback so they can fix it.
