Not so. Adobe products have bugs too.

I currently have an issue with certain fonts (Adobe fonts, in fact)  
not displaying correctly when embedded in PDFs and viewed in Adobe  
Reader 8 -- although the *exact same PDF files* display fine in  
earlier versions of Reader (5, 6, 7).

(And in case anyone's curious, they also look wrong in PDFkit-based  
viewers like Preview, but display correctly in Poppler-based viewers  
like Evince.)
