I'll try installing it, but I've learned that teachers can be very
resistant to new things right at the start of the school year.  I have
few that volunteer to test, so ... I can install Opera and then push
some desktop launchers to them.

Aside: I don't know if anyone does this, but I am using the
skel.groups approach to making sure certain icons appear. I just have
scripts in profile.d that run specifically for each group.  If a
person is in the group, they get the script which checks their desktop
and adds/removes icons.  So, for my volunteer group, I just have to
put a launcher in their 'group' directory.

With 2 votes, I'll try evince instead.
