Concerns about creating a form using Adobe Acrobat Pro 9 that can be read by most computers

One of my municipal clients and I have been flirting with the idea of an electronic PDF form that submits to a URL. We'll post the form via a web page or email. Many of the commercial establishments in town will be required to complete the form. If we use Adobe Acrobat Pro 9 to create the form, can we reasonably expect most clients to have a version of Adobe Acrobat Reader X to be able to read and complete the form?

We just recently rolled out Adobe 10 as Standard for all of our workstations. They finally worked all the kinks out. X is also on mobile devices now so I think you should be safe saving it in version 9's  format.  

We were using version 7 for a long time, but once all the windows 2000 machines got out of the the system we moved up to 9.
