Not having myself yet read the article, PDF Reader alternatives exist:  Foxit, PDF-Xchange Viewer, not sure what other good ones.  Best bet is switch to PDF-Xchange Viewer, which I use on an 'old' Windows Vista computer.

Just now checked that article.  If you like and use PDF files, you are still in good luck, since there is MS Edge, and Sumatra.  Those are in addition to the suggested earlier PDF-Xchange Viewer.  I do not yet know anything about that Adobe DC thing.

Adobe DC Reader has been the latest version of the Adobe Reader line for at least two years now (and I think a bit more).  It was "the next generation" after XI, which was the last of the "numbered" line.

 

I love Tracker Software's PDF-XChange Viewer (now discontinued, but still downloadable and entirely usable - it's OCR capabilities alone are incredible) or PDF-XChange Editor, the vast bulk of which can be used for free (and which is the successor to PDF-XChange Viewer).

PDF-Xchange no longer continuing?  Big disappointment to me.  It was less than maybe 2 weeks ago, I took an update for mine (or was it less than "3" weeks ago?).   I prefer it much over Foxit Reader.  I wish there is or will be another GOOD alternative.

Answer to my own question according to a brief internet search:

Alternatives worth checking are Nitro PDF Reader, and PDF-Xchange Editor;

and there were a few others found, but those two seem to give the most likeable descriptions.
