Evince isn't as fancy as Adobe Reader, but it's light and fast which is what I need.
Oh, Adobe Reader is a bloated lump, filled with lots of features no one uses and some disastrous UI decisions. But comparing evince to my free reader options on OS X (Preview and Skim), both of which are fairly light and fast, it seems both feature lacking (no annotation features at all, limited export etc) and the UI seems a bit flabby (all that space at the top taken up by a few giant buttons).
Not that I'm saying it is dreadful or anything, just saying that I'm certainly not feeling that I am missing out by using OS X. I know the generalisation about Linux not generally having the same polish as regards UI is a lot of why I don't use it as my desktop OS (I use Linux for servers, though), but it is interesting to test that in detail.
