    1. Sumatra PDF is a slim, free, open-source PDF/DjVu/EPUB/XPS/CHM/CBR/CBZ/MOBI/FB2 viewer for Windows. Why another PDF reader? Sumatra has a minimalistic design. Simplicity has a higher priority than a lot of features. Its small and starts up very fast.

      Linux Version does not have any features compared to Xchange-Viewer. On Linux, Foxit is just a reader.

      Du Very similar. Foxit UI is much nicer, but PDF-XChange wins in features: rotating pages and saving them rotated, exporting pdf's as images are really useful.

      ps_ttf The PDF-XChange Viewer has been discontinued and replaced by the PDF-XChange Editor which included all the features of the Viewer. And it is also free! (the free version is available but it is not immediately obvious from the app's site)

      Evince vs PDF-XChange Viewer opinions
      This alternative is disputed. Evince is still a legitimate alternative to PDF-XChange Viewer, but it might have issues that some users think are important.
      Evince is not an annotator
