We use Acrobat 5.0.5 with the CJK language add-ons, QuickTime 6,
RealPlayer 8 Basic, Windows Media Player, Shockwave/Flash, AlternaTIFF,
ArcExplorer 2 (for some GIS files our planning department gives us) and
the DjVu and MrSID viewers.  There's also a new one Ancestry is using
for census images.

For PCs without Microsoft Office (mostly those dedicated to our catalog
and databases), I add viewers for Microsoft Word, Excel, PowerPoint and
the Access Snap viewer.

We have found this group to be sufficient for a long time, the only
change being that Ancestry viewer a few weeks ago.
