A small percentage of those people use Linux. ADE works under the Wine Emulator, but it won't recognize the Kobo.
This meant that people like me weren't able to read their ebook on the Kobo just because we choose to run Linux.
I found out that the once you load the ebook in ADE it's authorized already and can be simply copied on the Kobo.
This is very important for me, and others like me.
Moreover, I think Linux, by default, DOES love connect, mount, copy, umounting, disconnect.. what's wrong with that?
I WISH all devices would work as mass storage and no proprietary software should be between me and my device.
K, seriously now.
Didn't know how it worked for you. Looked like pretty
tedious, just to read one book.
The point could be in the way wine takes one application
and has to use i/o. One level is the task it has to fulfill.
Another one is "connect to device living on usb adapter,
see what it is, mount/whatever it..." A way complicated
than simple app loading. Maybe another wine instance for
that job only?
I'd like to repeat that linux likes connect, mount etc.
Exactly what you said right now.
