Evince is a document viewer for multiple document formats like pdf, 
postscript, and many others. The goal of evince is to replace the 
multiple document viewers that exist on the GNOME Desktop, like ggv, 
gpdf, and xpdf with a single simple application.

Eric, is pdf a free format for vector graphics ?
