The DRM and format compatability are all just ways to control where the media goes and how it is handled.... all about control and trying to lock you into one company or another.
So is this BetaMax vs VHS all over again?
BluRay vs HD-DVD?

Kindle vs all the other ereaders?

In the final analysis, I just want to read the friggin' book. The format wars are ridiculous.
