Got anything to recommend? I need a reader, but a writer, etc could be good too.

acrobat reader

Open office can export PDFs

If you're a photoshop user you can also import PDFs and save out to PDFs though the size can get rather large so some playing with the files is generally needed

I've been staying away from acrobat--doesn't it have a lot of crapware attached to t?

OK, I installed Acrobat, free edition. It wants to install an av prog, but lets you opt out of it. It does start up the "Adobe Manager" and the Adobe Update Service everytime you boot, but I quickly extinguised that shit...
