Adobe abondons Linux

You have probably heard. Adobe no longer supports Adobe Reader for Linux.

Adobe Reader is now only available for download for Windows, OS X, and Android. This might not come as a big surprise to the Linux community. Adobe stopped providing updates for the Adobe Reader for Linux some time ago. Linux users who have installed the reader, can still use it. There are also alternatives.

Are these features available in PDF readers like Evince or Okular?

We are interested in your experience. Is your work affected by Adobe's decision? Do you know any real alternatives?
