I just downloaded the pdf and viewed it full-screen in Acrobat 5.0.5 
(not reader). All of the vector artwork looks pretty darn good here. 
Might it have something to do with whether or not your machine supports 
Quartz Extreme (I know that mine does)? In fact it looks good in both 
Acrobat and Preview.
