I think it's possible that US and EU attention and rulings regarding Microsoft's Windows and Office monopolies pushed back a lot of Windows features over the years. Even the inclusion of media player was a big deal back in the day.

The best Windows PDF reader is: Free PDF Reader - Sumatra PDF by Krzysztof Kowalczyk

It's the best because it has no scripting support, securing it against all PDF exploits. Foxit has had its share of security issues; even Apple's PDF viewer has.

Sumatra works for 90% of the PDF's I use.
