Thumbs down PDF: Quality of Document Rendering on BSDs

A simple comparision of Evince (epdfview does the same) and Sumatra PDF using WINE (Sumatra PDF is open-source software, but written for Windows platform).

Evince vs. Sumatra | RENDERING


Evince vs. Sumatra | MEMORY USAGE


What is more funny, its more memory efficient to use Sumatra PDF using WINE then Evince natively ... guess whats my new PDF viewer

PS. If You are scared about lack of WINE on amd64, then I have good message for You, these screenshots are from FreeBSD 8.2 amd64 using package by Ivoras available here: http://people.freebsd.org/~ivoras/wine/
