What others? With a postscript viewer you can view many pdf's but not all.
So they are not really pdf viewers.

I know of only one other pdf viewer which is a dedicated pdf viewer: xpdf
(well, there is also gpdf, but that's just a Gnome compatibility hack on
xpdf). It's main advantage is that it's not only free as beer but also free
as in freedom. Over the usual pros of such a status, in this case it yields
a very specific extra feature... Hm, have you ever tried to print an
encrypted pdf? ;)
