I realize this is probably only relevant to about 3 of the readers, but I’m posting this so I don’t forget how to do it myself!

I would argue Foxit Reader 2.0 is the best alternative to Adobe Reader for Windows. Unlike the bloated Adobe product; Foxit Reader 2.0 is light on system resources and opens PDF docs extremely faster than adobe. Foxit Reader 2.0 also includes free add-ons, no lengthy splash screens, has an intuitive streamline interface, and is under 2MB download size.

The market seems to be full of OS X Expose clones, but this is the first one that I’ve found that not only works really well, but has a ton of customization options. It’s called Switcher, and you might already be familiar since it’s been out for a while.
