Heavens no! My only assumption is that anyone to whom the creation of Mobi books is important will have equipped themselves with the tools to create them, whether that's by running natively under Windows, running mobigen under Wine, or whatever.

Creating my own books is absolutely vital to me, so I'd never buy a book reader which didn't allow me to create my own books. I don't run Linux (I have Macs and Windows machines) so I, for example, wouldn't buy any reader whose tools ran only under Linux. I'm assuming it's equally true that someone who didn't run Windows wouldn't buy a reader whose creation tools ran only under Windows. That seems pretty reasonable to me!

You have a CyBook Gen3, don't you? How do you create books for it?
