Yes, great - but too many options there.

  -> Is there a way I can make it just diplay PDF file, with no controls, except exit?
  -> That is, I would like to customize PDF application, so it will contain just the necessary amount of menu items.

For example, I've found Cool PDF reader very simple and useful, tho I can't have that nagging link in the top right corner.

Well, for me it seems that Sumatra PDF reader is really good one. Tried them all, and not one is so usefull and small as this little GPL thingy.

Will get back to the post later with more findings.

OK, Sumatra PDF is GPL, so I will just modify UI a bit and it will be ready to go! :-)

Will post more, this could be useful for others.

Hi people!,

    compiling is not as easy as I've thought, but it works.

    I can recommend Sumatra PDF, tho have in mind that this is a light and simple reader, without any advanced features, but on the other hand - SumatraPDF's RAM footprint is 4MB...
