What this means is, you can use it without touching the Sony software. Which is vital to those of us who don't particularly like being dependent on Redmond. This gizmo works fine, out of the box, with Linux and Mac. Which is good ...
The 500 also reads PDF and RTF and works perfectly well with non windows operating systems.
