I don't think anyone mentioned these two far simpler and more productive 
ways of editing PDF files for free on Windows or Linux.

Inkscape www.inkscape.org works really well when importing PDF's, but 
you can only edit one page at a time.

Otherwise try OpenOffice with the PDF Import plugin, which I believe is 
still available on the Sun/Oracle site.

PDFEdit in Linux is ok, but is pretty clunky and crashborne in my 
experience as yet.

Lastly, if you want to throw some money at it ... PDFStudio is pretty 
good. There are 100's of commercial PDF editors for Windows, but this 
one works with Linux too, and works well if the Open Source solutions 
don't cut it for you.

Kind Regards,
